A 39 year old housewife had a bluish color intradermal mass with tenderness and pain which was palpabled on the posterior upper portion of the left thigh for 10 years. Histopathological examination revealed the typical change of eccrine spiradenoma. The tumor cells were arranged in small intertwing cords and seperated by hyaline connective tissues. Two types of epithelial cells were present in the cords: the small and dark nuclei were located at the periphery of the cellular aggregates, the large and pale nuclei were located in the center of the aggregates and might be arranged partially around small lumina in some tumors. This was a typical case of Eccrine Spiradenoma. A brief discussion was made on the presentation from the views of histogenesis, malignant change and cause of pain.
