Eccrine Angiomatous Hamartoma in a Child
Eccrine angiomatous hamartoma (EAH) is a rare, benign malformation characterized by both eccrine and vascular components. It usually presents at birth or during early infancy and childhood as a nodule or a plaque, usually solitary, involving acral skin. Eccrine angiomatous hamartoma is usually asymptomatic, although focal hyperhidrosis, hypertrichosis, and pain can be observed. We report an additional case of this rare entity presenting in a 14-year-old boy.
