Goyal, Amit and Mansel, Robert Edward 2003. Iatrogenic injury to the breast bud causing breast hypoplasia. Postgraduate Medical Journal 79 (930) , pp. 235-236. 10.1136/pmj.79.930.235

A 14 year old girl with iatrogenic breast asymmetry is reported. She had multiple operations to the left anterior chest wall in the neonatal period for diaphragmatic hernia that resulted in multiple scars, which damaged the left breast bud. A better thoracotomy incision avoiding the breast bud could prevent later breast hypoplasia.
