Abstract

Electron microscopic examination in a case of papular xanthoma revealed the presence of myelinlike laminated bodies in the cytoplasm of the foam cells. To our knowledge, similar bodies have been described in large numbers in only two cases of congenital self-healing histocytosis and one case of generalized eruptive histiocytoma. The presence of laminated bodies may be a morphologic characteristic of papular xanthoma. However, this possibility should be confirmed by identification of the same inclusions in other cases of this disease.
