Dermatol Sinica 18: 235-238, 2000

A 68-year-old male patient presented with a yellowish soft nodule protruding from the skin of the scrotum for several decades. The histopathological study revealed acanthosis, papillomatosis and large amounts of xanthoma cells in the papillary dermis. The diagnosis of verruciform xanthoma was made. No recurrence was detected over a 1-year follow-up period. The clinical and pathologic features, differential diagnosis from other verruciform lesions, the current hypothesis about the pathogenetic mechanism, and the difference between orientals and white people were discussed.
