Abstract

Malignant nodular hidradenoma is a rare eccrine sweat gland tumour with the commonest site being the head and neck region followed by the extremities. It is seen mainly in the sixth decade of life with a slight male preponderance. The usual manifestation is that of a solitary, slow-growing painless papule or nodule. These tumours have been reported to have a high local recurrence rate.
We present a rare case of malignant nodular hidradenoma in a young female occurring in the post-auricular area.
