Syringomas are benign adnexal tumors derived from the intraepidermal portion of eccrine sweat ducts. Clinically, they usually appear as small yellow or skin-colored papules ranging from 1-3 mm in diameter on the lower eyelids. The condition of eruptive syringomas is a clinically distinct, uncommon variant of syringomas. This entity was first recognized by Darier and Jacquet in 1887. Since the initial description, less than 100 cases have been reported to date. Although eruptive syringomas can develop on various sites of the body, instances of widespread involvement, known as generalized eruptive syringoma, are rare. In this paper, we present a case of generalized eruptive syringoma on a 26-year-woman. She exhibited multiple, eruptive asymptomatic papules, symmetrically distributed on the face, scalp, upper and lower extremities, chest, and abdomen.
