Necrobiotic xanthogranuloma with myeloma. A case report.Cancer 1987; 59(3):588-92C
Necrobiotic xanthogranuloma is a newly recognized cutaneous manifestation associated with paraproteinemia. Necrobiotic xanthogranuloma is distinctive clinically by yellowish-red nodular lesions, often ulcerated, with predilection for the periorbital area and ocular involvement. Histologically, it is characterized by the combination of inflammatory xanthogranulomas together with areas of necrobiosis. These skin lesions are associated with a dysglobulinemia and preceded the development of an IgG lambda myeloma in a previous patient. Hyperlipidemia may be found in some patients. A case of necrobiotic xanthogranuloma is reported, occurring in a 46-year-old man and associated with an IgG kappa myeloma.
