Background: Eccrine angiomatous hamartoma is a rare lesion that resembles a cutaneous benign tumor. It is a combination of vascular structures and eccrine glands, and it may be present as a nodule or tumorous plaque on the dermis. We report this case because it is uncommon cutaneous lesion. Case Report: A 27-year-old man presented to our polyclinic with complaints of a painful tubercle in the left antecubital fossa. The tubercle had a firm consistency and had been growing for a couple of years. The hemangioma-like tubercle was completely excised. The histopathological diagnosis was eccrine angiomatous hamartoma, confirmed on immunohistochemistry. Conclusion: Eccrine angiomatous hamartoma is a rare benign non-neoplastic skin lesion that require treatment because of symptoms such as pain and hyperhidrosis and cosmetic reasons.
