ABSTRACT
Generalized eruptive syringoma is a rare clinical presentation of a benign adnexal tumor that derives from the intraepidermal portion of the eccrine sweat ducts. It presents as successive crops of small flesh-colored papules on the anterior body surfaces. It generally occurs in the peripubertal period. Treatment of this benign condition is cosmetic only. A case of a 28-year-old female with an eight-year history of eruptive syringoma is presented.

Figure 0001: Multiple skin-to tan-colored flat topped papules on the upper abdomen and anterior chest

Mentions: Physical examination revealed multiple, skin to tan-colored, flat-topped papules, 1 to 3 mm in diameter, on the forearm, thigh, neck, anterior chest, upper abdomen [Figures 1–4]. The lesions were bilateral, symmetrical, and had both follicular and nonfollicular distribution. No puncta or significant surface changes were noted and Darier's sign was negative. The remainder of the physical examination was unremarkable. A skin biopsy was obtained from a lesion in the forearm. Punch biopsy specimen revealed a normal epidermis overlying a dermis that was filled with multiple ducts embedded in a fibrous stroma. The ducts were lined by an inner layer of flattened epithelial cells. Some had a tadpole-like appearance due to the presence of a comma-like tail, which was formed by the cells projecting from one side of the duct into the stroma. Ductal lumina were filled with an amorphous material [Figure 5, Figure 6].
