Abstract
Introduction: Gynecomastia is one of the common endocrine disorders in adolescent boys. During puberty, up to 70% of the boys have some breast development. However, in this enlargement, up to 75% of the cases resolve spontaneously within 2 years without any treatment. Rarely surgical management is also required to correct the gynecomastia.
Case Report: A 16-year-old boy presented to us with gynecomastia, with a chromosomal aberration of 15ps+. We proceeded with a subcutaneous mastectomy using an infra areolar incision.
Conclusion: The 46XY karyotype with enlarger satellites of acrocentric chromosome 15ps+, is one of the rare entities. Occurrence of Giant gynecomastia in the presence of this particular chromosomal aberration is also a rare entity. In this paper, we would like to highlight these rare entities and the management of the same.

Keywords: Abnormal karyotype with gynecomastia, Giant gynecomastia, Gynecomastia, Subcutaneous Mastectomy
