Ectopic mammary gland tissues are an entity affecting 2% to 6% of women. Its origin is embryonic with development on the “milk line” most of the time.
It can be asymptomatic or present as pain or tenderness. Its symptomatology is often variable according to hormonal cycles.
We present here the case of a 15-year-old child with a unilateral sub axillary mass present during her menstrual cycles.
The treatment was surgery and the diagnosis was confirmed by anatomopathological analyses.
