Eccrine porocarcinoma is a rare malignant adnexal tumor that develops from the intraepidermal ductal part of eccrine sweat glands. It is commonly seen in the lower extremity and rarely in the scalp, face, ear, body and upper extremity. The surgical treatment of eccrine porocarcinoma is controversial as this is a rare tumor. In this case report, a 38-year-old patient of eccrine porocarcinoma on atypical localization of the scalp is presented.
