LocalizationThis section has been translated automatically.
Basically, syringomas can occur at all parts of the body surface, especially when they occur eruptively. Preferably they are found on the lower eyelids, less frequently on the upper eyelids (eyelid syringoma). Further on the neck, chest, axillary folds, groin, vulva/scrotum rarely on the extremities. Palms and soles of the feet are always left out. The acrally localized syringomas can usually be assigned to an eccrine origin.
Clinical featuresThis section has been translated automatically.
Mostly multiple, disseminated, slowly developing over the years, less frequently erupting, about 0.2-0.3 cm large, firm, shifting, skin-coloured or reddish-brownish, completely symptom-free (milia-like) papules. They are primarily a cosmetic problem.
