Cylindromas are very rare and benign adnexal tumours of the skin. Very few reports of these benign tumours are reported in the literature. Dermal cylindromas are characterised as a benign neoplasm of the eccrine sweat glands. The most frequent location is the head and neck. Multiple occurrences are often linked to the Brooke-Spiegler syndrome. The Brooke-Spiegler syndrome is inherited as an irregular autosomal dominant trait. A malignant transformation to an adenoid cystic carcinoma is also described in the literature. The leading treatment modality described in the literature is the complete surgical removal of the lesions. Here, a systematic review of the literature is presented with two rare cases of cylindromas.
