Eccrine porocarcinoma is a rare malignancy that is derived from the eccrine sweat gland.1 The paucity of information about this entity in the literature creates a challenge in both diagnosis and treatment. We present a case report and review the world literature regarding eccrine porocarcinoma in an effort to summarize the international experience with this lesion and to help guide future management.
