Case Report

A middle-aged man with multiple yellowish papules all over the body

ECY Chu 朱灼欣 and WY Lam 林偉業

A 47-year-old man presented with progressive eruption of papules over bilateral upper limbs and lower limbs for one year. Skin biopsy revealed aggregates of foamy histiocytes. Blood tests revealed markedly elevated triglyceride level. It is compatible with a case of eruptive xanthoma.
