Case Report: An Unusual Case of Eruptive Xanthoma Mimicking Tophaceous Gout

Nithin K M [9] | Neeraj R Shetty [8]


Abstract: Eruptive xanthomas are cutaneous lesions which are rare but their presence indicates severe metabolic disease. Hence such patients should be thoroughly investigated to prevent misdiagnosis of underlying diseases. They can mimic tophaceous gout. We present a 53 yr old male with eruptive cutaneous lesion in the left elbow since 3 months and chest pain since 2 days. We suggested getting his ECG done and sent his routine blood investigations along with lipid profile. His lipid profile revealed raised cholesterol levels along with ECG changes. He had to undergo angioplasty for the same. On receiving treatment for high lipids his skin lesion also decreased in size.
