Arm Tumor Resembling a Supernumerary Nipple

Arm Tumor Resembling a Supernumerary Nipple Abstract REPORT OF A CASE A 50-year-old woman presented at the Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center dermatology clinic, New York, with an eight-month history of a pruritic mass, which recently had become larger, on her right arm.
