In humans, eccrine sweat glands play important roles in regulating body temperature.[1],[2] Secretory coils and ducts are two components of eccrine sweat glands and have different structures and functions.[1] Eccrine sweat glands are innervated mainly by terminal nerve fibers, which are expressed at low levels.[1],[3] Therefore, it is difficult to detect these peripheral nerve fibers by standard histochemical techniques, and signal amplification is required.[1],[4] The tyramide signal amplification (TSA) system is a technique used to amplify weak signals and can be easily integrated into standard immunofluorescence (IF) protocols.[3],[5],[6],[7],[8] In this study, we combine standard IF with TSA to characterize weakly expressed nerve fiber antigens.

Pleomorphic adenomas come in the differential diagnosis of chondroid syringomas but in contrast to those syringomas arise from sweat glands.8 Based on the histopathological differences chondroid syringomas have eccrine and apocrine variants.9 Mills reported that mixed tumors are monoclonal neoplasms with replicating cells that can differentiate towards mesenchymal or epithelial components and this accounts for the histological differences of the mixed tumor of the skin.10 The treatment of choice for chondroid syringoma is wide surgical excision.11 Because of the lobulated nature of the tumor, the margins of the normal tissue should also be included with the excision to ensure complete removal of the tumor.11
