Abstract

Eccrine poroma presents as a single, symptomless erythematous papule in areas with a high density of eccrine sweat glands. Although rare, eccrine poromas can present as multiple lesions, otherwise known as eccrine poromatosis. The etiology of eccrine poromatosis is unclear. We present two cases of eccrine poromatosis in patients who had undergone chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and stem cell transplant. This case report serves to raise awareness of this condition and highlight its association with malignancies and their treatment.
