Synopsis

Syringomata are benign skin-adnexal tumors that present as small, dome-shaped papules, often in a periorbital distribution; they may, however, occur at any site on the body. Syringomata likely arise from luminal cells of eccrine sweat ducts. The tumors are asymptomatic but do persist over time. They are more common in women. They occur with increased frequency in Down syndrome patients. Treatment is for cosmetic purposes.
