Mentions: During the examination the patient pointed out a white, scar-like lesion on his mid left cheek measuring 8 × 4 mm in diameter. It was non-pigmented and was composed of a clearly demarcated flat white plaque (Figure 1). Dermatoscopically the lesion exhibited a dense white structureless area with fine linear branched blood vessels centrally. A notable feature was the white clods of variable diameter superiorly (Figure 2). Differential diagnosis included morphoeic or fibrosing basal cell carcinoma and desmoplastic trichoepithelioma [4]. Eccrine syringoid carcinoma, a rare malignant cutaneous adnexal tumor, should also be included in the differential diagnosis [5].
