Abstract

Abstract. The apocrine hidrocystoma tends to occur as a solitary facial cystic lesion. We report an unusual patient in whom there were multiple apocrine hidrocystomas scattered over the periorbital region and ears. Although solitary apocrine hidrocystomas are easily treated with excision, we had good results employing carbon dioxide laser vaporization in the treatment of numerous hidrocystomas. 1989 American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, Inc.
