A 28-year-old man presented with a partially eroded growth on the back of his right thigh for the last 15 years. Tuberculosis verrucosa cutis and pyogenic granuloma were suspected on clinical examination. Histopathological examination revealed syringocystadenoma papilliferum (SCAP). SCAP is rare on the thigh and a review of the English literature revealed eight cases. Non-descript clinical presentation in an unusual location and the rare linear and segmental variants lead to misdiagnosis. Onset at puberty should alert one to the possibility of the unusual location of SCAP.
