Syringocystadenoma papilliferum is a benign adnexal skin tumour of the apocrine or the eccrine type with characteristic histological features and varied and non-distinct clinical findings. It is relatively a rare neoplasm, which is called as a childhood tumour, since it usually appears at birth or during puberty. A case of syringocystadenoma papilliferum of the scalp in an adult male has been presented, which was clinically diagnosed at first as keratocanthoma of the scalp but was later histologically confirmed as syringocystadenoma papilliferum.
