Nodular hidradenoma is a variant of benign cutaneous adnexal tumors which arises from eccrine sweat glands. They occur frequently on the scalp, face, abdomen, and extremities. The clinical appearance of this lesion is not specific and differential diagnosis can only be done after complete removal of the lesion. We report a case of nonhealing ulcer on anterior abdominal wall in a 35 year male. The ulcer occurred following excision of a recurrent anterior abdominal wall swelling of 4 year duration. Wedge biopsy was done in this institution and it was inconclusive. The ulcer was managed with antiseptic dressing, followed by skin grafting. Patient developed recurrent ulcero-proliferative lesion involving the same area in 3 months period. Wide excision of the ulcer revealed features of nodular hidradenoma. Nodular hidradenoma is reported rarely.
