Eruptive syringoma is a rare benign tumor of eccrine sweat gland. Clinically, it presents as successive crops of symmetric, small yellow-brown to erythematous or skin-colored papules on the anterior body surfaces. It usually occurs in young women. Definitive diagnosis can be made on histopathological findings. The pathogenesis of eruptive syringoma is unclear but there are few reports about its association with antiepileptic drugs, radiation, trisomy 21, depilation and hyperthyroidism. The presented case was a 25-year-old woman who had referred with papules in forehead, periorbital regions, cheek, chin, chest, abdomen and forearm. Eruptive syringoma was confirmed based on its distinctive pathological findings. She thought her skin lesions were related to consumption of oral contraceptives. The importance of this disease is its cosmetic problem.
