Xanthoma, eruptive - close-up

Xanthomas are firm, raised waxy-appearing papules (bumps) which may occur on the trunk, arms, and legs. The lesions may be skin-colored, pink or even yellow. The presence of this type of skin lesion may be associated with abnormal levels of lipids (fats) in the blood.
