Bowen’s or Paget’s disease involving nipple is not an uncommon event. Surgical excision with nipple-areola reconstruction is usually required for cosmetic reason. Immediate reconstruction of the deformity during operation is time-saving to both patient and the surgeon.

No tumor recurrence or sequela was noted at 8-year follow up. He was satisfied with the good cosmetic result.
