THELITIS

From Big Medical Encyclopedia

THELITIS (thelitis; Greek thele of pacifiers + - itis) — an inflammation of a papilla of the breast.

The term «thelitis» is applied extremely seldom since the isolated inflammation of a nipple almost does not meet. As a rule, inflammatory process in a nipple extends to surrounding tissues of a mammary gland with development mastitis (see).
