Eccrine Angiomatous Hamartoma
Haw-Jeong Lin, Hsu-Po Yeh
Dermatol Sinica 8: 169-176, 1990

We report two cases of eccrine angiomatous hamartoma with rather classical clinical and histopatological pictures. Case 1 was a 24 years old female who noted a painful nodule over dorsum of right foot for more than 10 years. The histopatho-logical examination showed hyperplasia and conformational change of sweat glands, and groups of dilated or septated blood vessels that were located near the sweat glands. There were also significant amount of mucin deposit mainly surrounding the blood vessels. Case 2 was a 55 years old female who found a painful subcutaneous nodule over right flank for several months. The histopatholgical examination showed an increase in the number of sweat ducts, beneath which some thick or thin-walled, septated blood vessels were noted. Mucin deposit in this disease has not been reported in the literature before and it significance is unclear.
