We present the case of a 65-year-old woman who presented with a sudden onset of pink sweating affecting mainly her axillae but also her pelvis, causing staining of clothing and bed sheets. There was nil to note on examination and histology with immunostaining demonstrated focally prominent yellow-brown lipofuscin granules in the cytoplasm of the apocrine secretory cells confirming the diagnosis. The disease can have a significant psychosocial impact, and treatment remains challenging. Our case is unique because the red and pink coloring of sweat is less common in cases of apocrine chromhidrosis, which is often in favor of darker colored sweat, and the distribution involved the inguinal canal, which is also less often seen.
