AIM: Syringoma is a term that represents the histological features of the benign micropapular entity, denominated hidradenoma. Eyelid syringoma and eruptive syringoma are the more frequent forms while the rare scalp localization appears in form of cicatricial alopecia.
METHODS: A fair-sized infiltrated plaquelike growth, skin coloured with grey-mauve areas, first appeared 10 years ago in the sincipital region of the scalp, was described in an old-aged woman. After total excision, syningoma diagnosis was established.
CONCLUSION: Our case growth anatomoclinical pattern has to be differentiated from both clear cell myoepithelioma of the skin and chondroid syringoma. Our case constitutes the first case of scalp plaquelike non chondroid syringoma as well as the first case of non-chondroid syringoma appeared in old age, in the literature. Therefore, the spectrum of syringoma lesion morphology-topography tends to be broadened.
