The authors present a case of an adenoma of the nipple in a 61-year-old man who reported a 6-month history of nodularity and itching at his left nipple. Examination revealed a firm, well-defined, vascularized tumor measuring .8 cm that altered the normal anatomy of the nipple. A total excision of the nipple and areola was performed. The histological diagnosis was adenoma of the nipple. No recurrent tumor has been observed during 4 years of postoperative follow-up. An adequate excision of the lesion is curative without any risk of recurrence or development of malignancy.
