Papillary Eccrine Adenoma, also called a Tubular Apocrine Adenoma, is a benign sweat gland tumor that I occasionally encounter in both my The Woodlands dermatology and Conroe dermatology offices.  Papillary Eccrine Adenomas clinically appear as dermal skin colored nodules.  They are most commonly found on the extremities, especially the dorsum of the hands and feet.  These lesions have a high rate of recurrence so surgical excision is the treatment of choice.
