Extramammary Paget disease
A rare skin tumor characterized by predominantly intraepithelial growth of an adenocarcinoma which may either arise primarily in the skin (primary extramammary Paget disease) or result from intraepithelial spread of a visceral carcinoma (secondary extramammary Paget disease). The lesion is typically located in the anogenital region, presenting as a scaly, oozing, pruritic or painful erythematous plaque often resembling eczema. It may exhibit an invasive component with a significant risk of lymph node metastasis.
