Ectopic extramammary Paget’s disease describes an exceedingly rare intraepithelial adenocarcinoma arising within non-apocrine tissues. We present a case report of E-EPMD arising on the lower abdomen without underlying secondary malignancy in a 56-year-old female patient. We performed a wide local excision of the lesion with subsequent mini abdominoplasty reconstruction.
