Tumors of sweat gland origin are not uncommon in the periocular region. These tumors frequently pose diagnostic difficulty due to the wide range of histopathological patterns, and to the fact that they may be infiltrative or have metastatic potential despite their relatively benign appearance. This report discusses the classification and diagnosis of five sweat gland tumors with variable histological appearance, including syringoma, mixed tumors, adenoma of ductal origin, and mucinous adenocarcinoma of sweat gland origin.
