Abstract

Eruptive xanthomas are rare and often asymptomatic. On the other hand, these cutaneous lesions are signs for serious underlying metabolic disorders that demand an early diagnosis to prevent morbidity and mortality. We report on one male patient, aged 32 years, who presented with eruptive xanthomas. Treatment was tailored according to underlying pathologies and resulted in significant improvement of the metabolic parameters and improvement of skin lesions. Dermatologists should be aware of the diagnostic importance of eruptive xanthomas for serious metabolic disorders.
