  • A 6-month-old female is described who presented with severe idiopathic macromastia. [...] Key Result The breast enlargement began at 2 months of age and progressed such that subtotal mastectomies were necessary at 23 months. Extensive hormonal evaluation prior to surgery revealed no evidence of estrogenization or precocious puberty. There was no galactorrhea. A breast biopsy showed immature mammary tissue.Expand Abstract
