Accessory Nipple

definition

Accessory nipples usually develop along the course of the embryological milk lines, which run from the anterior axillary folds to the inner thighs, but may also occur in other sites. In the majority of cases they appear as small brown papules, usually on the chest wall. A familial incidence is sometimes noted.
