Cutaneous xanthomatous tumours as an expression of chronic myelomonocytic leukaemia?

Author information

Department of Dermatology, Hospital Ramón y Cajal, Madrid, Spain.


Nonspecific cutaneous xanthomas have been reported in a variety of lymphocytic neoplastic processes, but to date only three cases of xanthomatous lesions associated with monocytic leukaemias have been described. We now report a patient with a chronic myelomonocytic leukaemia (CMML) associated with these lesions. The clinical and immunohistochemical features do not correspond to any entity previously described and suggest that xanthomas is are a cutaneous expression of the CMML.
