Apocrine hidrocystomas (cystadenomas) are cystic cu - taneous neoplasms derived from apocrine sweat glands (1, 2), and they most often present in adults as solitary (rarely multiple) lesions involving the head, eyelids and neck (3). They are also reported infrequently in the apocrine gland bearing areas like axillae, areola of the nipple, periumbilical, anal, and genital areas (3, 4). We present a rare case of apocrine hidrocystoma located at the urethral meatus of a 16-year-old male.
