Syringocystadenoma papilliferum is an exceedingly rare skin adnexal neoplasm of apocrine gland origin, commonly located primarily on the scalp and appearing as a hairless nodular plaque lesion. We report the case of a 35-year old man with history of an ulcer on the right leg which started three years earlier as a small excoriation after trauma to the leg over a lesion present from birth. Histological examination confirmed the diagnosis of syringocystadenoma papilliferum, which is a very rare lesion on the leg. We report this case due of its rarity and unusual clinical presenation.
