Abstract

Bowen's or Paget's disease involving nipple is not an uncommon event. Surgical excision with nipple-areola reconstruction is usually required for cosmetic reason. Immediate reconstruction of the deformity during operation is time-saving to both patient and the surgeon. We reported immediate areola-nipple complex reconstruction of a male patient suffered from chronic arsenism with a Bowen's disease (BD) on his nipple. No tumor recurrence or sequela was noted at 8-year follow-up. He was satisfied with the good cosmetic result.
