Abstract

A 23-year-old woman presented with an 8-month history of asymptomatic thickening of the central areola bilaterally and oily nipple discharge. On examination, there were yellowish-pink papules coalescing into plaques bilaterally. Biopsy showed ectopic sebaceous glands (Montgomery tubercles), known as bilateral areolar sebaceous hyperplasia.
