• Although syringoma is a relatively common adnexal tumor, syringoma of the hands has not been reported previously. We report a unique case of multiple acral syringomas that appeared as symmetrical grouped erythematous papules limited to the dorsum of the proximal and middle phalanges of both hands in a young man. This condition should be considered in the diagnosis of papular lesions of the hands.
