Abstract

Diffuse normolipemic plane xanthoma is characterized by the
presence of yellowish-orange plaques on the eyelids, neck, upper
trunk, buttocks and flexural surfaces of the extremities in patients
with a normal lipid profile. It mainly affects adults of both sexes.
Diffuse normolipemic plane xanthomas are usually associated
with reticuloendothelial system disorders, such as multiple
myeloma and monoclonal gammopathies. We report a case of
diffuse plane xanthomas in an otherwise healthy 1-year-old male
infant who developed multiple disseminated non-inflammatory
yellowish-orange macules and patches that were not associated
with any other symptoms..
