A Case of Eccrine Nevus: CASE REPORT

A 6-year-old girl with no significant past medical history presented with an asymptomatic, solitary lesion on her left wrist. On examination, there was an approximately 1.0 x 1.5 cm-sized, well-circum­scribed, ovoid, brownish plaque, with a centrally located hyperkeratotic and slightly scaly papule (Fig. 1). Biopsy findings revealed slightly increased num­bers of eccrine glands without any other abnor­malities, consistent with an eccrine nevus (Fig. 2).

Although there were no symptoms, the lesion was removed by surgical excision, and there has been no recurrence in the year after treatment.
