The occurrence of ectopic breast tissue in the axilla is rare and its incidence is not perfectly known. This tissue can show benign or malignant patterns similarly to orthotopic counterpart. A few cases of ectopic axillary fibroadenomas are reported in the literature. The case of a 24 year old woman presenting with axillary fibroadenoma is reported and a review of the literature is made with regards to the incidence, clinical presentation, emphasizing the difficulty of a differential diagnosis among lumps arising in this area.
