The sign of “nipple hyperthermia” has been valued and connected with mammographic report in a series of 2230 patients. In the 19 patients with nipple hyperthermia we have found carcinoma in 10 (52,6%), while in 9 (47,4%), hyperthermia is caused by a benign affection on phlogistic basis. In malignant forms the report has resulted frequently associated to mammographic and thermographic patterns of quick development. The writers lay stress on that the sign is not specific, but only suspect for cancerous form; in this instance it could be the sign of a defavourable prognosis.
