Abstract


Eccrine porocarcinoma is an extremely rare malignant tumor that arises from the ductal part of sweat glands. It may present as asymptomatic nodule which may ulcerate or get infected and become itchy or painful. Porocarcinoma commonly arises in the legs and feet and rarely in the scalp. It can metastasize and it has a high rate of recurrence. Gross total surgical excision with safety margin is the main stone of management. We present a case of scalp porocarcinoma in an 83-year-old lady presenting with an infected scalp lesion. Gross total surgical excision with safety margin was done.
