In this article Clarence William Brown JR and Lady Christine Dy states that Eccrine Porocracinoma is a tumour of the true sweat gland. It commonly represents in the lower extremities with Lymphatic Metastasis. The author’s also described the clinical presentation, evidence and the operative discoveries in a patient with eccrine porocracinoma involving the soft tissue tumour which had enroded through the cranium.
The discussion includes the epidemiology treatment, pathogenesis and the outcome of eccrine porocarcinomas. The author’s also states that the Lesions represent 60% of all cutaneous tumours.

What I have learned about the Eccrine Porocracinoma is that, it is a typically slow growing tumours and it can take many years before a diagnosis is made, because EP can cause other skin conditions. EP can often diagnosed on the lower legs or feet but may also affect the head and neck.

Also the tumour does not often cause symptoms but some patients do complain of bleeding or itch.
My thoughts and opinion: I like the article because it gives a clear understanding about the EP Squamous cell Carcinoma the cells in cords which often looks malignant but is not. I would reconsidered after reading this case about the EP. I would also conclude PE Coma because the cells should have a clear and cytoplasm. Another approach is the perception of this Lesion as a combination of spindle cells and the tumour with it’s malignant form of fibrous. I would recommend the article to others because it would help them to understand the...
