Papular xanthoma is a normolipemic xanthomatosis, characterized by nonconfluent papular to papulonodular eruptions on the face, trunk, extremities and occasionally mucous membranes. Histologically, there was an infiltration of foamy histiocytes and Touton type giant cells in the dermis without inflammatory cells or a pure histiocytic component. But, occasional lymphocytes were interspersed between the foamy macrophage. No systemic involvement could be found and the blood lipid profiles were normal. We report a case of papular xanthoma in a 30-year-old man with typical clinical, histopathologic findings.
