Syringocystadenoma papilliferum also known as syringocystadenomatosus papilliferus is a benign adnexal skin tumor presenting as exuberant proliferating lesion of apocrine or eccrine type of differentiation. It is said to be common at birth or during puberty but cases in adults have also been reported. It typically develops as a nodular plaque lesion and is reportedly associated with nevus sebaceous in 40% of cases. Most the tumors are located in the scalp and face that present as multiple warty papules. We report a case of scalp swelling in a 19-year-old female who was first clinically diagnosed with keratoacanthoma but later histopathologically she was confirmed to have syringocystadenoma papilliferum.
