A 65-year-old woman presented with a pruritic lesion on the left breast of 10 years duration associated with occasional oozing and burning sensation. The patient had only used over the counter medications for recurrent ulcerations over the nipple. She related no history of any other dermatologic or systemic complaints. Cutaneous examination revealed a 10 X 7 cm well-demarcated erythematous mildly scaly plaque with inconspicuous nipple on the left breast [Figure - 1]. The overlying surface appeared shiny and atrophic. No underlying breast masses were palpable clinically and there was no lymphadenopathy. Biopsy features from the eczematous lesion are shown in [Figure - 2],[Figure - 3],[Figure - 4].
