Pathol Oncol Res. 2003;9(3):196-7. doi: 10.1007/BF03033738. Epub 2003 Oct 7.


Syringoma is a benign tumors of eccrine sweat gland. They appear as multiple, tiny, firm, skin-colored papules. Vulvar involvement of syringoma is rare. Only 24 cases with vulvar syringoma have been previously reported in the literature. The majority of patients with vulvar syringomas are asymptomatic. A case of syringoma of the vulva exacerbated during pregnancy is presented. The case appears remarkable for the experienced aggravated pruritic symptoms of the patient during her pregnancy.
