Eccrine sweat glands are derived from the epidermis.10 From the epidermis, they descend to the junction of the dermis and subcutis.10 Each eccrine unit consists of a hollow tube bound proximally by a secretory coil and distally by its opening onto the skin surface.10 The ends of the tube are connected by a straight duct, known as the syrinx, which traverses the dermis.10 The intraepidermal portion (acrosyringium) spirals to its opening on the surface.10 Hence, tumours of the syrinx are called syringomas, and tumours of the acrosyringium are termed poromas.10
