Amazia: A rare anomaly in a resource poor setting

Amazia is a condition where one or both of the mammary glands is/are absent in the presence of the nipple and areola. We report the case of a 13 year old girl who presented in our Paediatrics endocrinology clinic with failure of the right breast to develop while there were progressive changes of normal puberty in the left breast and other parts of the body. There were no dysmorphic features reminiscent of any syndrome. Management was hampered by financial constraint.
