Gynecomastia is an enlarged breast in men, unilateral or bilateral caused by an imbalance of the hormones estrogen and testosterone. Most often idiopathic and peripubertal, it nevertheless justifies a complete etiological assessment to rule out endocrinopathy or a malignant etiology, before considering surgical treatment in the absence of response to medical treatment or spontaneous regression. In this article the authors report a case of persistent gynecomastia in a small child of two years and a half followed in pediatric consultation and the plastic surgery department at the University Hospital Mohamed VI Marrakech (Morocco).
