Axillary syringomas

Dermatol Online J. 2008 Apr 15;14(4):13.


Syringomas are common benign neoplasms encountered mostly around the eyes. However, as described herein, these tumors can occur in atypical locations such as the axilla. The differential diagnosis revolves around those entities more likely seen in this anatomical location (such as Fox-Fordyce, Hailey-Hailey and Darier diseases). Various ablative modalities are curative.
