Nevoid Hyperkeratosis of the Nipple and/or Areola ? A Report of 2 Cases

Gauri Vats, Durgesh Sonare


Abstract: Nevoid hyperkeratosis of the nipple and/or areola (NHNA) is a rare skin disorder with an unknown etiology [1]. It has been put under type 3 of hyperkeratosis of nipple and/or areola (HNA) according to the classical Lewy Franckel classification. Usually bilateral, though unilateral involvement has been described. The eruption of such a malignant looking lesion over areola and/or nipple causes excessive concern in patients, thus its effective management with a decent cosmetic outcome is mandatory [1]. We herein report bilateral NHNA in a 22-year-old female and unilateral in a 20 year old male.
