This report describes eccrine sweat gland involvement in a patient with GM1 gangliosidosis. A striking vacuolization was noticed in cells of the acrosyringium and of the secretory coils. The diagnostic value of a skin biopsy in this condition is emphasized.

This article summarizes current knowledge of eccrine gland pathophysiology and suggests that the excretion of drugs into eccrine sweat may be a contributory factor in neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis, syringosquamous metaplasia, coma bulla, and erythema multiforme. Expand
