Abstract

Complete absence of secretion of breast milk due to an anatomical, physiological or pathological cause is rare. Congenital hypoplasia of breasts, Sheehan syndrome due to anterior pituitary failure following post-partum haemorrhage and bilateral mastectomy are some important rare causes. We report a mother with complete absence of breast milk due to hypohidrotic type of ectodermal dysplasia.

Key words: ectodermal dysplasia, absence of breast milk
