Abstract

Eccrine spiradenoma is a well-recognized benign tumor arising from the intradermal straight portion of the eccrine or merocrine sweat glands. It is usually a small, solitary lesion in the cutis and the subcutaneous tissues. As with other lesions in the cutis and the subcutaneous tissue, few cases describing the sonographic findings of eccrine spiradenoma have been reported. This case study demonstrates these sonography findings in a case of eccrine spiradenoma distributed in the right thigh.
