ABSTRACTEccrine poroma is a benign intraepidermal proliferation originated in the sudoral eccrine excretory duct (acrosyringium). It occurs in 10% of sweat gland tumors. Prevalence in Mexico is 0.23%. It affects mainly soles (60-68%), and it is a pink or reddish hemispherical or spherical soft or firm tumor. Histopathology study is the gold standard for diagnosis. We report two cases, one with an unusual presentation and another with a pigmented histopathological variety.
