Eccrine Neoplasms – Malignant Chondroid Syringoma

April 12th, 2011

Malignant Chondroid Syringoma is a maligant Eccrine Neoplasm that I rarely encounter in both my The Woodlands dermatology and Conroe dermatology clinics.  Unlike the benign version which occurs most often on the head and neck, Malignant Chondroid Syringomas are most often found on the trunk and extremities.  Malignant Chondroid Syringomas clinically appear as very large nodules and they metastasize at a very high rate.  The treatment of these malignancies is surgical excision.
