Abstract

BRUNO, Carolina Barbosa et al. Dermoscopic aspects of syringocystadenoma papilliferum associated with nevus sebaceus. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2011, vol.86, n.6, pp. 1213-1216. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962011000600027.

Syringocystadenoma papilliferum is a rare benign adnexal tumor that frequently shows apocrine differentiation. It usually develops on the scalp and is associated with a nevus sebaceus in 40% of cases. Although the clinical presentation may differ, its histology is characteristic. Reports have been made of dermoscopy used in cases of adnexal tumors such as eccrine poromas, hidradenomas and angiohistiocytomas; however, up to the present moment there have been no reports of dermoscopy in a case of syringocystadenoma. This paper describes the dermoscopic features found in a case of syringocystadenoma associated with a nevus sebaceus, revealing a polymorphous vascular pattern including a horseshoe-shaped arrangement of vessels.
