Involvement of the nipple-areolar complex is an infrequent area of distribution of hidradenitis suppurativa. The difficulty of this particular distribution has been encountered in the past and resulted in bilateral mastectomies. The authors describe successful treatment of a patient with hidradenitis suppurativa of the breasts and nipple-areolar complexes using breast-conserving measures. Normal breast contour was preserved and overall cosmetic result was good.
