TLDR
A new technique was used for easier routine detection of SNNs and the incidence of this anomaly was one per 40 or 25 per 1,000 live births.
The prevalence of supernumerary nipples in Arab infants and children
TLDR
A high prevalence of SNNS in the Arab population (infants and children) could possibly be due to ethnic differences, and the high rate of consanguinity found in many of the Arab families of this village may be another contributing factor.
Supernumerary areolae.
TLDR
The case presented describes a patient with three supernumerary areolae, including one located outside the embryonic milk line, which there is a possibility that this finding represents an atavistic phenomenon.

TLDR
It could be concluded that the accessory mammary glands are out of the image of screening breast examinations and Preventive resection of accessory breast in women at high risk of developing breast cancer can be considered as the treatment of choice in most patients.
