Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Syringocystadenocarcinoma papilliferum, a rare sweat gland carcinoma, is the malignant counterpart of syringocystadenoma papilliferum.

OBJECTIVE:

To demonstrate a rare case of syringocystadenocarcinoma papilliferum successfully treated with Mohs micrographic surgery.

METHODS:

A 60-year-old male presented with two verrucous plaques on his right auricle since childhood. These two plaques became ulcerated, more painful, and pruritic in 1 year. Histopathologic examination revealed syringocystadenocarcinoma papilliferum.

RESULTS:

Mohs micrographic surgery with reconstruction of right auricle was performed subsequently. There are no signs of recurrence or metastasis 6 years after operation.

CONCLUSION:

Syringocystadenocarcinoma papilliferum can be successfully treated with Mohs micrographic surgery.
