Abstract: Aim of the study To find out the (i) frequency of surface epidermal and appendageal tumors reported in the department of dermatology of a tertiary care hospital, (ii) clinical presentations, and (iii) their histological features. Materials and methods 60 patients presenting with different types of epidermal and appendages tumors as their main complaints were selected for the study. Skin biopsy and the relevant investigations were done. Results Out of 60 patients studied, 29 were male (48.33 %) and 31 were female (51.66 %), most of the tumors (80 %) occurred after 20 years of age and benign tumors (85 %) outnumbered malignant ones. Syringoma (20 %) was the most frequent benign tumor and basal cell carcinoma (8.33 %), the most common among the malignant tumors. Only one case of epidermal nevus patient had seizures and visual disturbances. Also, rare association of squamous cell carcinoma with xeroderma pigmentosa patient and growth retardation has been documented.
