Abstract

Accessory mammary tissue is a rarity of breast development. Approximately 6% of women develop accessory breasts along the embryological milk line. There are some reported cases of malignancy in the axillary breast but only a few case reports in the world literature regarding breast carcinoma of the accessory breast in the anterior chest wall. We report this case of a 52-year-old patient presenting with breast carcinoma in an accessory breast on the anterior chest wall with a review of the current literature.
