    Departments of *Dermatology, and †Department of Pathology, Ankara Numune Training and Research Hospital, Ankara,Turkey.
    Eruptive syringoma is an unusual variant of syringoma, which usually presents before or during puberty. It typically occurs in large numbers as multiple yellow-brown-colored papules, which may show spontaneous regression. Because some authors have proposed that it could present as a reactive process of eccrine ducts to an inflammatory reaction caused by an unknown trigger, the exact pathomechanism is still unclear.

    Evaluation of Syringomas by In Vivo Reflectance Confocal Microscopy: A Report of Two Cases.
    Am J Dermatopathol 2016 Oct 18. Epub 2016 Oct 18.
    *Department of Dermatology, University of São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil; †Department of Pathology, Hospital Obrero, La Paz, Bolivia; and ‡Department of Pathology, Dental School, University of São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil.
    Syringomas are benign adnexal tumors that are characterized histologically by the presence of small solid and cystic epithelial structures in the upper half of the reticular dermis. Reflectance confocal microscopy is a noninvasive diagnostic method that enables in vivo visualization of tissues with a resolution that approximates that of conventional histopathology. The use of this method in skin imaging over the past several years has improved dermatological diagnoses, creating the potential for its wide application in such diagnoses, especially for benign and malignant skin tumors.
