Abstract

Eccrine poroma is a benign solitary tumor with acrosyringeal differentiation that usually occurs on the sole or either side of the foot. Rapid growth of eccrine poroma during pregnancy has rarely been reported. We demonstrate a unique case of a 37-year-old pregnant woman who suffered from enlarged eccrine poroma on her left palm, which was tiny for 10 years but suddenly grew to a size of bean-sized reddish brown colored, pedunculated mass during pregnancy. The patient denied a previous history of trauma or infection to the lesion. Histopathologic findings with a shave biopsy were consistent with eccrine poroma. After the tumor was completely removed by the shave biopsy, no recurrence was noted for 5 months.
