Ectopic breast tissue (EBT) may occur unilaterally or bilaterally anywhere along the embryonic milk line that extends from the axilla to the groin. Any disease that affects the normal breast can develop in the EBT. A fibroadenoma in the axilla of a young female patient which was clinically thought to be a pathologic lymph node process such as metastasis or lymphoma is presented here.
