Case Study
Adenoma of the nipple (AN) represents a rare benign mammary proliferation of lactiferous ducts. It appears as an erosive or ulcerative lesion, which in a number of cases is associated with a serous/hematic secretion. AN may be clinically confused with Paget's disease and histologically with invasive breast carcinoma or breast cancer precursor lesions. Therefore, the histological and immunophenotypic analysis is essential for the differential diagnosis. The present study describes the histopathological characteristics of a first case series of AN.
