Eccrine Neoplasms – Syringofibroadenoma

April 19th, 2011

Syringofibroadenoma is a rare benign Eccrine Neoplasm that I occasionally encounter in both my The Woodlands dermatology and Conroe dermatology clinics.  Syringofibroadenomas clinically appear as scaly nodules or plaques and have a predilection for the extremities.  Multiple Syringofibroadenomas can be seen in certain genodermatoses such as hidrotic ectodermal dysplasia, Schopf syndrome, and Clouston syndrome.  In rare instances, Syringofibroadenomas can become malignant.  The treatment of Syringofibroadenomas is surgical excision.
