Disease at a Glance

Summary
Syringomas are firm yellowish, translucent, or skin colored papules that are often found on the face, particularly around the eyes, but may also appear elsewhere on the face, in the armpits, umbilicus, upper chest, and genitalia. They arise from the sweat ducts and may occur suddenly in crops or multiples. There are 4 types of Syringoma: a localized form, a form associated with Down syndrome, a generalized form that encompases multiple and eruptive Syringomas, and a familial form. Syringomas are usually asymptomatic; However, rarely, individuals can experience extreme itching (pruritus), especially while sweating. They are found more commonly in Caucasians, and in females at puberty or near middle-age.
