Reactive eccrine syringofibroadenomatosis describes multiple lesions of a subtype of the benign adnexal tumor eccrine syringofibroadenoma, which may be difficult to diagnose due to its rarity. This case illustrates a classic presentation of reactive eccrine syringofibroadenomatosis occurring within sites of a patient’s previous leg ulcers in the setting of chronic venous insufficiency. Recognition of this condition is essential for patient quality of life as well as monitoring for potential associated malignancy.
