Background Information: Unusual nipple lesions beyond breast cancer exist. The goal of this exhibit is to understand different management approaches for these rare lesions.

Educational Goals/Teaching Points: We consider differential diagnosis for uncommon nipple diseases. Besides Paget disease, we consider other causes of rare benign diseases presenting in the nipple. Detection of unusual lesions may change prognosis and patient management.

Key Anatomic/Physiologic Issues and Imaging Findings/Techniques: We focus on breast and nipple diseases using mammography, breast MRI, and breast ultrasound examinations.

Conclusion: After visiting this exhibit, radiologists will recognize the spectrum of lesions that may affect the nipple and understand the differences in management for these rare lesions.
