There are painful, deep seated inflamed lesions in the apocrine gland-bearing areas of the body; most commonly the axillary, inguinal and anogenital regions.
8) Interestingly, differences in recurrent alterations were also observed between apocrine pleomorphic LCIS and nonapocrine pleomorphic LCIS, which included a gain of 6p (15%) and losses of 3q (22%), 11q (32%), 13q (25%), and 17p (45%).
