Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Papular xanthoma is a normolipemic xanthomatosis that mainly affects adults. We describe the clinical, histologic, ultrastructural, and immunologic findings in 10 children with this disease. Papular xanthoma in children has the same clinical and histopathologic features as in adults, but it appears to be self-healing within 1 to 5 years.
