Xanthoma disseminatum(XD)is a rare normolipemic xanthoma nowadays classified as a benign non-Langerhans cell histiocytosis. We report a 15-year-old girl with orange-brown papules on her face, axillae and neck, where some coalesced into plaques. A biopsy from the axillary region revealed dense infiltration of foamy cells, histiocytes, lymphocytes and few Touton giant cells in the dermis. Based on the clinical and pathological findings, a diagnosis of xanthoma disseminatum was made.
