Necrobiotic xanthogranuloma with paraproteinemia.
Necrobiotic xanthogranuloma (NXG) is a rare skin disease mimicking necrobiosis lipoidica diabeticorum clinically and histologically. However, its association with paraproteinemia, and the evolution of hematologic malignancies in some cases, established NXG as a separate clinicopathologic entity. A typical case with indolent course is described.
