Syringomas are common benign neoplasm of eccrine gland. Usually syringomas are encountered in face, especially periorbital region. However, in uncommon cases, these tumors arise at atypical site with discrete clinical feature. In other side, there has been lots of discussions that focus on relationship of alopecia, cicatrical or not, and syringoma. Herein, we report a case of syringoma as grouped yellowish papules in axillary region with localized alopecia.
