Adenocystic Carcinoma as a Molecular Variant of Albino Skin Cancer

As an aftermath of the Nigerian Civil War, the Government appointed an Administrator for the East Central State. He established the Haile Selassie Institute of Orthopaedic, Ophthalmic and Plastic Surgery at Enugu, Nigeria. Subsequently, it was renamed as The National Orthopaedic Hospital. Throughout, I have been in charge of the Pathology Department. Having kept the results of all the personally examined surgical specimens, an interesting feature became apparent to me. Although a standard textbook affirmed that a major problem associated with albinism was “an increased risk of sun induced skin tumour, particularly squamous carcinoma,”. I found that the adenocystic carcinoma variety featured also. As the cohort belongs exclusively to the “Ibo” or “Igbo” Ethnic Group it seemed appropriate to report this epidemiologic finding in an international dermatologic journal, especially as it previously published on four such albinos.
