An unusual skin presentation of necrobiotic xanthogranuloma.J Coll Physicians Surg Pak 2010; 20(4):274-5JC
A well appearing 73-year-old Caucasian lady presented with a long-standing history of yellowish atrophic lesions on her limbs and trunk. The lesions were asymptomatic. These were found to be consistent with the diagnosis of Necrobiotic Xanthogranuloma (NXG) on histology. The reported patient did not have the characteristic skin changes and instead had unusual lesions reminiscent of morphoea not described in the literature. She reported no associated systemic symptoms.
