Hidrocystoma are a benign cutaneous cystic tumor originating from the sweat gland. There are two classical variant of hidrocystoma namely apocrine and eccrine. Apocrine hidrocystoma arise from proliferation of apocrine secretory coil and eccrine hidrocystoma develops as a retention cyst of eccrine duct . Apocrine hidrocystoma characteristically presents as oval , domed shaped cystic lesion predominantly over face and rarely over scalp, chest and shoulder. Multiple apocrine hidrocystoma are rare and are associated with Goltz-Gorlin syndrome and Schopf-Schultz Passarge syndrome. Here we want to highlight a rare case of apocrine hidrocystoma over infraorbital region which was excised with no recurrence. Histological examination revealed characteristic decapitation secretion within multilocular cyst lined by double layer epithelium.
