Accessory breast tissue is a developmental anomaly defined as persistence of breast tissue along the embryonic mammary line in the mid-thoracic region. Rarely, an abnormally located remnant of the line persists. A 29-year-old woman presented with a right ovarian cystic rupture into our hospital. She underwent laparoscopic right ovarian cystectomy. During operation, anterior abdominal wall mass, encapsulated with peritoneum, was found incidentally and resected. It was diagnosed fibroadenoma from ectopic mammary gland. We believe this is an unusual case of accessory breast tissue.
