Mammary Paget disease is the intraepidermal adenocarcinoma of the nipple area which is characterized usually by a well-demarcated eczematous plaque. Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM), is an in vivo noninvasive diagnostic tool with a high-resolution imaging of the skin, almost comparable to conventional histology. RCM findings of Paget disease are limited in the literature. Most of the reported cases are the extramammary type. In this report, we aimed to evaluate the RCM findings of a non-pigmented mammary Paget disease in a 65 year-old woman.
