Abstract:

Extramammary Paget’s disease of axilla is extremely rare and has not been well reported. It can be confused with eczema, superficial spreading melanoma or contact dermatitis. These patients can have an underlying malignancy. We report one such case in a 65 year old female who presented with recurrence of the lesion after 6 years.
