Abstract

Despite being frequently overlooked during the examination of histopathological sections, eccrine sweat glands can offer clues for diagnosing various skin conditions. They provide important functions and can lead to several diseases when inflamed or injured. This review article provides information regarding eccrine physiology as well as well-established and novel entities that occur in association with eccrine gland pathology.
