The histologic sections showed focal lymphocytic inflammation around the insertion of the eccrine duct into the epidermis. There was slight alteration, with minimal spongiosis, focal perieccrine inflammation, and a somewhat distorted eccentric eccrine duct. The findings were suggestive of mild chronic miliaria profunda.
