The leiomyoma of the nipple is a very rare affection. No more than 20 cases are reported in the literature of the last 50 years. This neoplasm presents a difficult differential diagnosis with the remaining phlogistic and neoplastic breast diseases. We report a personal case with a review of the literature.
