A malignant eccrine poroma in a pregnant woman: case report and review of the literature
Malignant eccrine poroma is a rare cutaneous neoplasm that originates from the intraepidermal portion of the eccrine gland. It affects mainly elderly people while its occurrence in younger adults is extremely rare. We present the first reported case of a malignant eccrine poroma in a pregnant woman, with emphasis on its pathologic and immunohistochemical features. Early diagnosis and treatment of eccrine neoplasms are of crucial importance when pregnancy coexists, because of their tendency to aggravate under the influence of gestation-related changes.
