Supernumerary Nipple Children with Different Types of Malignancies

Sevcan Bozdogan, Eda Bengi Yilmaz, Elvan Caglar Citak


A supernumerary nipple (SN), usually arises within the embryonic milk lines but can also occur in locations such as back, thigh, vulva and neck. The frequency of SN ranges from 0.2% to 5.6% depending on various factors. Although much has been written on the association of SN with other conditions, it still remains as a controversial and speculative area. SN can be associated with several disorders notably urological malformations and urogenital malignancies. To the our knowledge, the association of SN with childhood cancer has rarely been reported before.

Key words: Malignancy, supernumerary nipple, childhood cancer
