Case Report 


A Rare Finding of Coexisting Fibroadenoma and Duct Ectasia in Axillary Ectopic Breast Tissue

Sunita Singh, Hemant Yadav, Divya Srivastava, Rajeev Sen.

Abstract
Ectopic breast tissue (EBT) can present anywhere along the milk line from axilla to groin. It can harbor all the pathological conditions as that of the normal breast though incidence is very low. Fibroadenoma is rare in accessory breast and only a few cases have been reported in the literature. Here, we report a 30-year-old female presented with a firm and freely mobile right axillary lump measuring 6 cm 4 cm. Fine-needle aspiration cytology revealed it as accessory breast tissue. However, the excision biopsy of the same showed fibroadenoma along with duct ectasia in EBT. This case has been reported due to its rarity and for consideration of fibroadenoma in differential diagnoses of axillary swellings.

Key words: Breast, fibroadenoma, axilla
