The authors report on supernumerary nipples and various hematologic disorders in 7 patients [factor X deficiency (n = 1), factor XI deficiency (n = 2), acute lymphoblastic leukemia (n = 3), and acute myeloblastic leukemia (n = 1)]. They would like to draw attention to the association of supernumerary nipples with hematological disorders, which has not been published before and is considered to be added to the anomalies associated with supernumerary nipples.

    ABSTRACT: Paediatric breast disorders represent a varied set of abnormalities. The bulk of breast pathology in children and adolescents consists of congenital and developmental anomalies, infections and tumours of which most are benign. As breast development represents an important, early manifestation of female sexuality, inadequate development often constitutes a major worry for the adolescent and her parents. We briefly discuss the normal embryologic and physiologic aspects of breast development, which will serve as an introduction to the congenital and developmental problems seen in young girls and adolescents.

    ABSTRACT: Supernumerary nipples (SN) represent a developmental abnormality present in 1-6% of the population at large. Although the clinical diagnosis is as a rule easy, this lesion can mimic lentigos and melanocytic nevi, with which it may share some dermatoscopic features. Reflectance confocal microscopy is a new imaging technique that allows in vivo visualization of normal and pathologic skin structures, and is especially useful in the diagnosis of pigmented skin lesions. The reflectance confocal microscopic features of SN are described here, and the potential usefulness of this technique in the differential diagnosis of this lesion from its main clinical mimics is briefly discussed.
