syringoma

A benign tumour of the sweat glands which is usually multiple and results from malformation of sweat ducts. It is uncommon and more common in females than in males. It is most likely to appear at adolescence, and further lesions may develop during adult life. It does not appear to be hereditary. (rook et al., textbook of dermatology, 4th ed, pp2407-8)
