Abstract

CURSINO, Fabiana Dutra Uchôa et al. Porocarcinoma: case report. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2011, vol.86, n.6, pp. 1201-1204. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962011000600024.

Eccrine porocarcinoma is a rare, malignant neoplasm of eccrine sweat glands. It often occurs in elderly people, mean age of 67.5 years. The clinical features are variable and their localization is not related to sweat-gland concentration, occurring mainly on the feet and legs. Disease diagnosis and treatment should be as early as possible in order to avoid tumor aggressiveness that occurs in 20% of the cases. The authors present a case of extensive porocarcinoma on the thorax of a 71-year-old male patient.

Keywords : Acrospiroma; Carcinoma; Eccrine glands; Sweat gland neoplasms.
