Nevoid hyperkeratosis of the nipple and/or areola (NHNA) is a rare and benign condition first described by Tauber in 1923. NHNA mostly reported in female patients of child bearing age affecting both the nipples. The aetiology is not well defined and similarly the treatment is empirical. Usually the patient seeks treatment for the cosmetic appearance. Here we report a case of 17-year-old male presented with hyperpigmented to skin coloured verrucous plaques on either side of the right nipple which are asymptomatic and gradually increasing in size since six years. The histopathological features are consistent with nevoid hyperplasia of areola. Till now NHNA has not been reported in young males hence, we report a case of Nevoid hyperkeratosis of the areola in a young male.
