Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

Cutaneous appendageal tumor can differentiate towards or arise from either pilosebaceous apparatus or the eccrine sweat glands. Appendageal tumors are relatively rare, their clinical appearance is non-specific, and the vast majority are not diagnosed until after excision. Eccrine porocarcinoma (EP), also known as malignant eccrine poroma is a rare adnexal tumor arising from the intraepithelial ductal parts of the sweat gland.

CASE PRESENTATION:

We presented a 65-year-old, Asian, female with medical co-morbids, who came with both a facial squamous cell carcinoma and a long-standing lesion over her left forearm. Histopathological finding of the left forearm demonstrated eccrine porocarcinoma.

CONCLUSION:

Mohs micrographic surgery is the mainstay treatment of cutaneous carcinoma. It is important to rule out associated syndromes in patient who present with multiple cutaneous appendageal tumors.
