Abstract: Erosive adenomatosis of the nipple (EAN) is a rare benign neoplasm of the nipple. The entity is generally characterized by erosion, serous discharge (serous and/or sanguineous), nodularity, swelling, itching and erythema of the nipple. It may be confused with mammary Paget’s disease of the nipple and obtain over-treatment. We reported a patient with typical clinical and histopathological features. Clinicians should consider EAN as one of the differential diagnosis in patients with erosions on the nipple.

Keywords: breast neoplasm, adenoma, erosive adenomatosis of the nipple, histopathology, surgical excision
