Abstract

Eccrine hidrocystoma is a cyst origined from the secretory portion of the eccrine sweat gland and tends to occur as a solitary facial lesion. Clinically, an eccrine hidrocystoma presents as a small, translucent and cystic swelling(often having a bluish hue) which measures 1 to 3 mm in diameter. In some patients, the mass is appeared with numerous lesions. The mass has the tendency that the number of cyst increases in warm weather and decreases during winter. The histologic finding is an intradermal cyst with a thin wall composed of two layers of eosinophilic- staining cuboidal cells. Eccrine hidrocystoma has not yet reported in the journal of korean society of plastic and reconstructive surgeons. Thus, we report a case of 65-years-old female patient with eccrine hidrocystoma, which presents 2.1 x 1.6 x 1.6 cm in size and bluish hue color, occurring on the nasal tip.
