We present four new cases of tubular apocrine adenoma. Clinical histopathological and ultrastructural findings are discussed. The presence of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) has been studied in three cases of tubular apocrine adenoma. This antigen was found predominantly in the lumen of the ducts and in the apical portion of the luminal cells. This pattern is similar to the distribution described in normal sweat glands and in other adnexal tumors.
