Nevus Syringadenomatosus Papilliferus of the Hairy Scalp Resembling Clinically a Sebaceous Cyst

Nevus Syringadenomatosus Papilliferus of the Hairy Scalp Resembling Clinically a Sebaceous Cyst Abstract Nevus syringadenomatosus papilliferus is a rare cutaneous disease which usually presents a group of firm, rose-red, millet- to hempseed-sized papules. Some of the papules may be umbilicated, resembling molluscum contagiosum. A vesicle-like component containing clear fluid is not uncommon. Stokes'1 patient presented extensive vegetative plaques. Helwig and Hackney2 studied 100 cases, and in all instances the lesions appeared as a solitary verrucoid patch rather than a single tumor, as seen in our patient. Sachs and Lewis3 reported five cases, one of which had the clinical appearance of a sebaceous cyst on the upper lip. The histopathology in their case was interesting in that the predominant process was that of a mixed tumor containing cartilage and bone, while the nevoid process was deep. The heterogenous mixture of tissues would suggest teratoma. In all instances of this type of nevus the histopathologic picture is distinctive. Report of a References 1. Stokes, J.

Abstract

Abstract Nevus syringadenomatosus papilliferus is a rare cutaneous disease which usually presents a group of firm, rose-red, millet- to hempseed-sized papules. Some of the papules may be umbilicated, resembling molluscum contagiosum. A vesicle-like component containing clear fluid is not uncommon. Stokes'1 patient presented extensive vegetative plaques. Helwig and Hackney2 studied 100 cases, and in all instances the lesions appeared as a solitary verrucoid patch rather than a single tumor, as seen in our patient. Sachs and Lewis3 reported five cases, one of which had the clinical appearance of a sebaceous cyst on the upper lip. The histopathology in their case was interesting in that the predominant process was that of a mixed tumor containing cartilage and bone, while the nevoid process was deep. The heterogenous mixture of tissues would suggest teratoma. In all instances of this type of nevus the histopathologic picture is distinctive. Report of a References 1. Stokes, J.
