Syringomas are benign skin tumors of the eccrine sweat glands. The chief affected areas are lower eyelids and malar areas, however, vulvar syringoma is a relatively rare. The lesions are small, multiple, firm, yellowish colored papules and microscopically, have dilated cystic sweat ducts which have comma Iike tails resembling tadpoles. The majority of patients with vulvar syringomas are asymptomatic but sometimes associated with pruritic symptom. We repart a case of vulvar syringoma in a 55-year-old woman who presented with a intermittent pruritus with a brief review of literatures.
Key Words: vulvar syringoma; pruritus
