Case Report

Paget's disease of the nipple

SY Cheng 鄭秀儀

This is a report of a 45-year-old Chinese woman who presented with an eight-month history of unilateral eczematous like rash on her left nipple-areola area. No breast mass was palpable. The skin biopsy confirmed the lesion to be Paget's disease of the nipple. Mammogram showed abnormal microcalcifications at the superio-lateral quadrant of the left breast. A left mastectomy was done and the histopathology of the mastectomy specimen confirmed an underlying high grade ductal carcinoma in-situ.
