  • Syringocystadenoma papilliferum (SCAP) is a benign rare adnexal skin neoplasm, which in a third of cases arises from a nevus sebaceous and is most commonly found on the head and neck and in very rare instances found on the genitalia. We report on a 59-year-old man with SCAP on the scrotum. The clinical scenario and histopathological findings are outlined. Following excision and histological confirmation of a noninfiltrative process, the patient remains asymptomatic. To our knowledge, only three other cases of such a lesion on the scrotum have been reported in the literature.
