Eccrine porocarcinoma is a rarely seen malignant tumor of the sweat glands. It is commonly seen in elderly people and it tends to involve lower extremities. Surgical excision is the main therapeutic modality. It may show local recurrences and systemic metastasis. The effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy are contradictory. Here, we present a case of 90-years-old female patient with eccrine porocarcinoma localized in the axillary area and additionally we review the existing literature.
