We report a case of acquired generalized anhidrosis successfully treated with cyclosporine. A skin biopsy showed T cell infiltration around the sweat glands and labial biopsy revealed lymphoplasmacytic infiltration around the minor salivary gland, suggesting an underlying autoimmune disease such as Sjögren's syndrome. Administration of cyclosporine markedly improved the patient's condition and sympathetic skin response; thus cyclosporine may be effective for treating anhidrosis in patients with autoimmune disorders. © 2013 S.
