Eruptive syringomas.

Author information

Department of Dermatology, Razi Hospital, Tehran University of Medical Sciences.


Syringomas are benign adnexal tumors derived from the intraepidermal portion of eccrine sweat ducts. Usually, they present as soft, flesh-colored to slightly yellow dermal papules on the lower eyelids of healthy individuals. We report an 18-year-old man with rare presentation of eruptive syringomas involving his trunk and extremities, with linear arrangement on the arms and forearms. A biopsy obtained from the lesions of the dorsum of the hands showed eccrine syringoma with a lymphocytic inflammatory infiltration around superficial blood vessels and eccrine ducts. We used the 585-nm and 595-nm pulsed dye laser for treatment of inflammatory lesions of forearm and trunk with no success.
