Synopsis

Xanthoma disseminatum (XD), also known as Montgomery syndrome, is a benign disease seen in children and adults where brown to yellow lipid-containing lesions form on the skin. XD is classified as histiocytosis syndrome. The xanthomatous skin lesions tend to form on the flexor surfaces of the arms and legs and in the periocular region. Involvement has also been seen in the gastrointestinal tract, respiratory tract, CNS, and optic nerve and can cause significant morbidity and mortality. The skin lesions are typically self-limited, and little is known about treatment of XD.
