    Abstract

    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.
