We also came across a rare entity, accessory breast and accessory nipples [1]. After Excision, the Pathology report noted pilosebaceous units and smooth Muscle bundles, consistent with an accessory nipple [2]. In addition, the patient had another accessory nipple in the "milk line" on his torso [3]. Intraoperatively, a 14×10×8 cm accessory breast was found in the inframammary fold, distinct from the left breast and having an accessory nipple areola complex as well [4]. Some of congenital cutaneous anomalies serve as an important clue for accompanying syndromes or other Medical conditions [5].

Ultrastructural features of Adult Epidermal nevi have rarely been investigated [6]. Herein, we report a case involving a Japanese Adult who had epidermal nevi with right congenital blindness and a right accessory nipple [7]. The histopathologic and ultrastructural studies showed divergent abnormal epidermal structures in both Melanocytes and keratinocytes [8]. A Number of cleft-like appearances (8/19) and central network-like structures (7/19) had also been observed [9]. We describe a 53-year-old man with an accessory nipple on the left Chest who presented with stage IIA testicular seminoma at the age of 47 [10].

Published reports of patients with polythelia and genitourinary malignancies, as well as other neoplasms, are reviewed [11]. Also, lymph node metastases may present in the ipsilateral mamma [12]. The first case is developing normally but has severe limb anomalies, congenital constriction rings, scoliosis because of vertebral anomalies, a left accessory nipple, a small tumor-like Swelling on his lower back with tiny skin tubular appendages, a hypoplastic scrotum, and an anchored Penis [13]. The second case is developmentally delayed with limb malformations, congenital constriction rings, a lumbar myelomeningeocele, hemangioma, and tiny tubular skin appendages on the back [14]. We present a case of a 92-year-old Female with a 1-year history of a Subcutaneous Tumor of the right Axilla, histologically consistent with a diagnosis of PCDAA arising in an accessory nipple [15].

Peripheral streaks can also be seen in seborrheic keratosis and BCC [16]. The patient also exhibited Bilateral nipple retraction and Unilateral left-sided accessory nipple [17]. Dissension has arisen, with some dermatopathologists asserting that sclerotic fibroma is just an evolutionary end-point of a previous Lesion [18]. We detail the histopathological findings of lesions consistent with the classic description of SFS and compare these to sclerotic changes observed in an intradermal nevus, blue nevus, erythema elevatum diutinum, neurofollicular hamartoma, angiofibroma, neurofibroma, accessory nipple, and dermatofibromas [19].
