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.
