Erosive adenomatosis of the nipple (EAN) is a rare, benign neoplasm of breast lactiferous ducts. Peak incidence is in the fifth decade in women. Clinically, it is mistaken for eczema during early stages and Paget's disease at later stages. We present a young lady with EAN who was advised mastectomy. It is important for dermatologists to be familiar with this entity to avoid topical steroid abuse and unwarranted breast removal. This case is presented for awareness and importance of correct and early diagnosis.
