Nipple discharge is a rare but possible occurrence after nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM). This study presents the first case of galactorrhea in a female patient after NSM. Although milky discharge due to physiologic lactation related to pregnancy is more common, galactorrhea is still possible and should be worked up appropriately to ensure that all breast tissue has been removed and that there are no other more worrisome causes.
