Differential Diagnosis


Syringomas are benign tumors derived from the ductal portion of the eccrine unit.  They appear as skin-colored or hyperpigmented papules, typically on the eyelids and cheeks of middle-aged women.  Clinical variants of syringomas include solitary, eruptive, milia-like, lichen planus-like, and plaque-type.
