Abstract

Eccrine poroma is described as a benign neoplasm originating from the intraepidermal eccrine duct of sweat glands. Typical distribution of the tumour is on sites where there is the highest concentration of sweat glands, such as palms and soles.  If the tumour is untreated it can cause the risk of malignant transformation towards porocarcinoma. Here, we report a case of 48-year-old female, who presented with a nodule on the right palm.  After excisional biopsy, specimen was sent for histopathological examination and it was diagnosed as Eccrine poroma.
