Common Name(s)

Absent Breasts and Nipples

Congnital aplastic deformities of the breast include amastia (total absence of breasts and nipple), athelia (absence of the nipple), and amazia (absence of the mammary gland). Most common is amastia. Bilateral absence of the breasts may occur as an isolated anomaly or may be associated with a syndrome or a cluster of other anomalies, including anhidrotic ectodermal dysplasia ({305100}) and Poland syndrome ({173800}) (summary by {4:Papadimitriou et al., 2009}). Genetic Heterogeneity of Aplasia or Hypoplasia of Breasts and/or Nipples An autosomal recessive form of breast and/or nipple aplasia or hypoplasia (BNAH2; {616001}) is caused by mutation in the PTPRF gene ({179590}) on chromosome 1p34.
