Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Syringoma is a benign eccrine sweat gland tumour affecting mostly females at puberty as multiple soft papules usually 1-2 mm in diameter. The sites of predilection are lower eyelids, cheeks. Syringoma of the vulva is a rare disorder. Only few cases have been reported in the literature. We report here a case of 46-year-old female who presented to gynecology department with vulvar papules associated with vulvar itching and burning since two years. Microscopic examination of the punch biopsy revealed numerous small ducts lined by two layers of epithelial cells embedded in a fibrous stroma. Some of the ducts showed small comma like tails of epithelial cells imparting them a tadpole shape. Despite being a rare diagnosis, vulvar syringoma should be kept in differential diagnosis with vulvar pruritus.
