Poroid hidradenoma is a benign soft-tissue neoplasm with eccrine differentiation. It is the newest addition to a group of neoplasms known as poromas.

Twenty-one percent of poroid hidradenomas occur in the extremities. The histologic and clinical features of this tumor are presented here, along with a case report.
