In the literature, there were only 13 cases pilonidal disease in the intermammary region [1, 2]. Here we present a case of a 22-year-old female. She had chronic discharging sinus in the intermammary area for six month. The examination revealed that the patient was hirsute and had multiple sinuses in the intermmarian region (Fig. 1). Serous discharge was present in the patient; however, there was no abcess formation. The patient was treated with antibiotics and curettage of the sinus epithelium.
