Syringomas are benign, adnexal tumours that are derived from the intraepidermal portion of the eccrine sweat ducts. Syringomas are usually sporadic but familial forms have been seen rarely. Lesions are in the form of bilaterally symmetrical firm skin colored papules which are commonly seen in periorbital areas and are cosmetically a concern. Even though periorbital is the most common location, rare forms have been described. Generalised eruptive syringomas is a rare form. Here, we report a patient with sudden eruptive syringomas that included the whole body posing a difficulty in the diagnosis.
