Abhishek Chowdhury [2] | Utpal Goswami


Abstract: Molluscum contagiosum is a common cutaneous infection caused by a double-stranded DNA poxvirus. Skin lesions classically present as small, pearly papules with central umbilication. Lesions can be found anywhere in the body, frequent sites being the face, trunk, and extremities of children, or genitals of young adults as a sexually transmitted infection. Molluscum contagiosum on the nipple is very rare and to the best of our knowledge, only five cases of nipple and areola of which two of nipple, have been reported so far. We report here this unusual case of molluscum contagiosum on the right nipple in a 23 year old female.
