Abstract

Bloody nipple discharge in infancy has rarely been reported in medical literature. We report a 7 month-old female infant with a one month history of bilateral nipple discharge. Endocrinologic and hematological workups were within normal limits. Breast ultrasonography showed two non-echogenic cystic areas in each breast. The problem resolved after a period of observation. This is a benign condition and resolves spontaneously, but if persistent, should be properly investigated. Biopsy or excision is not indicated. We recommend breast ultrasonography for the follow-up of this condition.
