The eccrine syringofibroadenoma is a rare tumor with differentiation toward the eccrine sweat apparatus.   There is still debate as to its exact classification with cases resembling nevoid lesions, adenomas, reactive lesions, and associated with hidrotic ectodermal dysplasia.


The lesion may present as a solitary papule, nodule or plaque, or as multiple papules, often on the extremities.  A case of chronic thick, hyperkeratotic plaque of the right sole has been reported.
