Eccrine angiomatous hamartoma is an uncommon, benign clinical entity constituting a nodular proliferation of eccrine glands and vascular structures localized to the dermis that typically present as unilateral, flesh-colored, erythematous, or violaceous papules on the extremities. These hamartomas may be associated with pain, hyperhidrosis, joint deformity, or functional impairment depending on the severity of the disease process. We present a case of bilaterally symmetric, asymptomatic eccrine angiomatous hamartomas involving all proximal interphalangeal joints of both hands. To date, there are only four prior cases of bilaterally symmetric eccrine angiomatous hamartomas reported in the literature, suggesting that the distribution experienced by our patient may represent a previously undescribed syndrome.
