Bottom Line: Eccrine angiomatous hamartoma is a rare hamartomatous lesion characterized by proliferation of eccrine glands and small blood vessels, and occasionally other elements.It generally arises congenitally or later in childhood, as solitary or multiple lesions on the distal extremities.Adult-onset multiple lesions are very rare.

ABSTRACT
Eccrine angiomatous hamartoma is a rare hamartomatous lesion characterized by proliferation of eccrine glands and small blood vessels, and occasionally other elements. It generally arises congenitally or later in childhood, as solitary or multiple lesions on the distal extremities. Adult-onset multiple lesions are very rare. Herein we describe a 33-year-old male with symptomatic multiple eccrine angiomatous hamartoma lesions.

Mentions: A 33-year old male presented with a 6-year history of brownish plaques on both legs. His medical and family histories were unremarkable. The patient reported that the plaques were occasionally painful and that the lesions produced more sweat than the surrounding skin. The patient also reported that there was no trauma preceding the appearance of the lesions. Dermatological examination showed brownish indurated plaques at the medial sides of the bilateral popliteal fossa and posterior of the right leg (Figure 1). The plaques were painful upon palpation. The starch-iodine test was performed to determine the presence of hyperhidrosis.
