Ectopic breast tissue (EBT) is a rare anomaly. Common location of EBT is along the milk line extending from the nipple to the symphysis pubis. EBT is susceptible to same pathologic processes as normal breast. Fibroadenoma though very frequent entity, but is very rarely reported in EBT of axilla. It poses a diagnostic challenge to the treating physician, and high index of suspicion is required for early detection. Here we report a rare case of fibroadenoma of EBT of axilla in a 25-year-old girl, which was managed by excision.
