The case of a young pregnant woman who developed an acute gigantomastia during pregnancy is presented, in addition to the unusual finding of bilateral axillary breasts. The condition was treated by simple mastectomy and immediate reconstruction with a subpectoral silicone implant. The literature is reviewed, and this rare combination of pathology is discussed.
