Eccrine poroma (EP) is a benign neoplasm of sweat glands originating from the terminal intraepidermal eccrine duct. This tumor is generally known to present over acral locations, most commonly over palmar and plantar surfaces; however, it has also been documented on the trunk, face, and neck region. EP over the auricle is rarely reported. We are reporting a 71-year-old male who presented with a mass in the right retroauricular region, which was histopathologically suggestive of EP.
