Abstract

Eccrine poromas are benign adnexal neoplasm which usually present with a solitary lesion on palms and soles. Rarely, multiple eccrine poromas can occur, defined as eccrine poromatosis, which were reported after radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy. We report the case of 56 years old woman with left breast cancer stage T2N2M0 status post left breast conservative surgery with sentinel lymph node dissection and chemotherapy with radiation therapy 9 years ago. She complained of painless erythematous papules at her left breast and left thigh for 1 year. Excisional biopsies for two lesions were done. The histopathology results confirmed the diagnosis of eccrine poromatosis.
