Polythelia is a rare congenital malformation that occurs in 1-2% of the population. Intra-areolar polythelia is the presence of one or more supernumerary nipples located within the areola. This is extremely rare. This article presents 3 cases of intra-areolar polythelia treated at our Department. These cases did not present other associated malformation. Surgical correction was performed for psychological and cosmetic reasons using advancement flaps. The aesthetic and functional results were satisfactory.
