Abstract To the Editor.— Chromhidrosis is a rare disorder of apocrine glands that may cause diagnostic difficulties.

She had previously documented mild symptomatic peripheral neuropathy of the feet, which had virtually resolved after a change in her insulin regimen, and was otherwise well and did not receive any other medication. There was no evidence of a generalized disorder of sweating. There were no abnormal cutaneous findings, and no References 1. Shelley WB, Hurley HJ. Localized chromhidrosis: a survey .
