Clear cell hidradenoma is a benign eccrine gland tumour with rare incidence of malignant transformation. It is more commonly seen in adult females in the second to fifth decades. Head and face are the most common sites. On histopathology, tumour shows periodic acid–Schiff-positive clear cells and polyhedral cells. Recurrence rate is low if the lesion is completely excised. Here, we report three cases of clear cell hidradenoma presenting as a solitary nodule on the neck, scalp, and chest.
