Abstract

Breast abscess in men is a very uncommon condition. Unlike females, breast abscesses in men are commonly caused by aerobic organisms and very rarely by anaerobes. We are hereby reporting a case of retro-areolar abscess in a male patient caused by anaerobic organisms. The culture of the drained abscess yielded the growth of Finegoldia magna, a strict anaerobic Gram-positive cocci, and Bifidobacterium scardovii, a slow growing non spore-forming anaerobic Gram-positive bacilli. Timely surgical intervention and initiation of appropriate antimicrobial therapy showed an improvement of this condition.
