Eruptive xanthoma is defined by the combination of its clinical and histopathological features. While a nodular dermal infiltrate rich in foamy macrophages and associated with extracellular lipid deposition is typical of eruptive xanthoma, some microscopical variability can be seen. Herein, we report an unusual case of eruptive xanthoma exhibiting triglyceride deposition in a peculiar configuration. A biopsy from a papular lesion showed prominent deposition of crystalline material, surrounded… CONTINUE READING
