DefinitionThis section has been translated automatically.
Naevi or malformations with eccrine glandular components are extremely rare. Their clinical morphology is as diverse as it is uncharacteristic. Some nevi may have residual eccrine functions such as localized hyperhidrosis.
From the older literature the following terms are summarized under this term:
- hamartoma, eccrine, angiomatous
- Eccrine pilar angiomatous nevus
- nevus eccrinus
- Comedon nevus of the palm
- Nevus, linear, eccrine with comedones
- Ostiumnaevus, porokeratotic-ekkriner.
Clinical featuresThis section has been translated automatically.
Clinically very different, usually not very distinct clinical pictures, whose clinical morphology depends on the composition (angiomatous, hair follicle components, degree of differentiation) of the respective malformation (nevus) as well as on localisation and arrangement.
Differentiation is made:
- The nevus eccrinus as a purely eccrine hamartoma with local hyperhidrosis,
- The eccrine angiomatous hamartoma, a (also several; see case report) congenital, slowly growing, red to grey-blue, firm to very firm, painful nodule or a corresponding plaque with a stronger angiomatous component, which also shows hyperhidrosis. Mostly a sooey surface.
- Eccrine pilar angiomatous nevus (hamartoma)" combines eccrine, hair and vascular components (verrucous surface and hypertrichosis).
- The acrosyringeal nevus shows a linear plaque or it occurs with multiple papules, possibly in combination with epidermal dysplasia.
- The so-called eccrine porokeratotic ostium nevus (PEODDN) occurs as congenital, verrucous plaque on palms and soles. The focal hyperkeratoses correspond to cornoid lamellae. The sweat glands were normal in the published cases.
As a clinical form the PEODDN (Porokeratotic Eccrine Ostiumnaevus) belongs rather to the epidermal nevi.

Eccrine angiomatous hamartoma
A 40-year-old patient noticed increasing, persistent, slightly reddened swellings on the lower legs in number and size for 12 months. At the same time massive lesional dysesthesia occurred. There were no extracutaneous symptoms and no trauma history.
Findings: On both sides of the ankles, both inside and outside, and to a lesser extent on the lower legs, 8 to palm-sized, considerably pressure dolent, blurredly limited, ﬂach eleviated, doughy, inhomogeneous, livid-red plaques were found. Hyperhidrosis was present in sections.
Imaging examinations: o.B.
Histo: The histopathological examination showed a nodular hyperplasia of eccrine sweat glands and their excretory ducts in the reticular dermis, surrounded by mucin and ectatically dilated vascular spaces and increased nerve fibre bundles.
Therapy: At first an attempt of therapy with Botox-Inﬁltrationen was made (altogether 90 I.U in 2 sessions). Thereby temporary pain relief. Lymph drainage was without success. Finally, a großﬂächige subtotal excision of disease areas with plastic cover was performed in two sessions with split skin TX (defect area on the right 20×8 cm and two areas on the left medial 20×12 cm and lateral 17×12 cm). After healing, the patient showed significant improvement.
