Disseminated xanthosiderohistiocytosis, a variant of xanthoma disseminatum, in a patient with a plasma cell dyscrasia.


A 57-year-old man was evaluated for infiltrative sclerotic nodules and plaques of the skin, the oral cavity, and the eye. Skin biopsy revealed a proliferation of mature histiocytes and extensive hemosiderin deposition, findings most consistent with xanthoma disseminatum and its variant, disseminated xanthosiderohistiocytosis. The subsequent development of a plasma cell dyscrasia was consistent with previous reports and suggests that xanthoma disseminatum is a marker for plasma cell disorders.
