      A malignant sweat gland tumor has been described which arose in the forearm of a 33-year-old Hebrew man. It was first noted when the patient was 16 years old. Over the course of 17 years, it recurred locally four times, invaded the radius, and metastasized to the epitrochlear and axillary lymph nodes. In all of its manifestations, the tumor showed an intracystic papillary structure. At the time of this communication, twenty-two months after pathologic demonstration of bone invasion and extension to the regional lymph nodes, and three months after amputation of the arm, there is no clinical evidence of distant metastasis.
