Familial eruptive syringoma (FES) is an uncommon clinical presentation of syringoma, a benign tumour of the intraepidermal portion of the eccrine sweat ducts. It is characterized by firm, smooth, skin-coloured to pigmented, discrete papules that appear as successive crops on the anterior body surface of individuals who also have one or more family member(s) with similar eruptive or localized lesions. The inheritance is autosomal dominant. Eight types of familial syringomas have been proposed, although the number of reported cases is quite few. We present a case of familial eruptive syringoma that could be classified as type 4 familial syringoma.
