Abstract

We reported a 12-year girl who presented with congenital hypertrichosis, gingival hypertrophy and massively pendulous enlargement of breasts with normal biochemical and hormonal reports. Reduction mammoplasty, long pulsed Nd: YAG laser were done to reduce the breasts’ size and hypertrichosis respectively. The histopathology of the resected breast tissue was compatible with virginal macromastia. This patient presented with a rare combination of several unusual features and requires multidisciplinary approach to improve the quality of her life.
