Xanthoma disseminatum is a rare, benign, non-Langerhans cell histiocytic disorder of unknown etiology. A case is presented of a 71-year-old man with a

three- year his tory of disseminated symmetricyel low ish papules and plaques on the

skin of the face, neck, flexor regions, trunk, extremities and oral mucosa, with fatty

in filtration of the liver and pancreas, and cardiac complaints. Xanthomatous rhinophyma predominated on the face. Clinical, immunohistochemistry and histology

findings indicated the diagnosis of xanthoma disseminatum. Although the patient

had a positive family history of cardiovascular diseases and a number of symptoms

that are often associated with hyperlipidemia, repeat plasma levels were always

within the normal limits. The case was in teresting because of a number of etiologic

factors that could be connected with the appearance of xanthomas in our patient.

Therefore it was difficult to classify the disease into one of well-de fined nosologic

entities. The case report is supplemented with a review of rele vant literature.
