Department of Dermatology, Cathay General Hospital, Huinchu, Taipei, Taiwan.Pediatric Dermatology (Impact Factor: 1.02). 05/2009; 26(3):360-2. DOI: 10.1111/j.1525-1470.2009.00925.x
Normolipemic papuloeruptive xanthomatosis is a very rare skin disorder. We report a child with yellowish papular eruptions on the face that rapidly merged into confluent plaques. Serum lipid profiles showed normolipemia. A diagnosis of normolipemic papuloeruptive xanthomatosis with no associated systemic disorders was made. The skin lesions involuted spontaneously during follow-up.
