[Uncensored photo below] Case report: Ectopic nipple on the sole of the foot, an unexplained anomaly. "Supernumerary nipples are common congenital anomalies, most often occurring along the embryonic milk lines. We present a patient with an ectopic nipple on the foot. We are unable to explain the aetiology of this anomaly; however, several theories have been proposed."

Bonus figures:

"The patient considered the lesion to be a cosmetic blemish and refused to have it excised. He was advised follow-up every 6-months or to seek consultation if any features of the nipple changed."
