Twenty-one cases of verruciform xanthoma are reported, bringing to fifty the total cases in the literature. The lesion was found most often in middle-aged persons, and the most common location was the gingiva or alveolar ridge. The cause of the verruciform xanthoma is still uncertain Verruciform xanthoma is a relatively uncommon lesion. Half of the reported cases occurred in the gingiva or alveolar ridge. In most cases, the clinical impressions are papilloma or verrucous carcinoma, which demonstrates the importance of the clinical and pathological recognition of this lesion Extraoral verruciform xanthoma is extremely uncommon; it has been reported on the anogenital skin such as the vulva, scrotum, penis, and extremities.

Arch Dermatol Verruciform xanthoma From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Verruciform xanthoma is an uncommon benign lesion that has a verruciform (wart -like) appearance, but it may appear polypoid, papillomatous, or sessile. The verruciform was first described by Shafer in 1971 on the oral mucosa No keratinocyte atypia or dyskeratotic cells are seen. There is a dense infiltrate of lipid laden macrophages (foamy cells) in the papillary dermis (figure 2) which are positive for CD68 and negative for S100. Which statement is true of cutaneous verruciform xanthoma? It is frequently caused by HPV genotypes 6 and 1 Verruciform xanthoma is a rare entity not associated with dyslipidaemias. It most commonly affects the mouth, where it is found as a solitary, asymptomatic lesion on the gingiva and is associated with chronic graft-versus- host disease Verruciform xanthoma is usually found on the oral mucosa, 1 but it also occurs, on rare instances, on the skin of the vulva, 2 groin, 3 and penis, 4 and has been reported to develop in an epithelial nevus. 5 I describe three patients with verruciform xanthoma arising on the scrotum.

Verruciform xanthoma (VX) is a rare benign lesion and oral predominantly that can also affect skin and genital mucosa (1). First described by Shafer in 1971 (2), it is characterized by histiocytes with lipid accumulation in the subepithelial papillary area (3). The etiology and pa-thogenesis of this lesion remain unclear. The aim of this article is to describe a rare case diagnosed as VX based on clinical and histopathological examination, and make a brief review of the literature Verruciform xanthoma is a benign entity that was first described in 1971, 1 and the first case in an African American individual was reported in 1978. 2 Although the name of VX is attributable to the presence of lipid-laden cells in the papillary dermis, there has been only 1 case of related systemic lipid abnormalities reported in the literature. 3 The most common location for VX is the oral. The clinical appearance of a verruciform xanthoma is not diagnostic; the diagnosis is almost always made at histologic examination. Depending on the nature of the individual lesion, verruciform xanthoma may clinically resemble any verrucous, papillary, or lichenoid oral lesion, particularly any such lesion that is also hyperkeratotic Verruciform xanthoma is a distinct clinicopathologic entity first reported in oral mucosa1 and subsequently on female genital skin.2 It is most frequently located in the oral mucosa but has been reported in other mucocutaneous locations (glottis, epiglottis, larynx, lips, nose, neck, axilla, extremities, digits, penis, scrotum, and anal region) as well Diffuse plane xanthomatosis is a rare, noninherited disorder related to diseases of the reticuloendothelial system.

Verruciform xanthoma is a benign, usually solitary, lesion. It typically occurs on the oral mucosa. Foamy histiocytes in the papillary dermis are the pathologic hallmark. The overlying epidermis frequently shows acanthosis and papillomatosis . These lesions can be found anywhere along the gastrointestinal tract, commonly in the stomach and colon, and rarely in the small intestine and esophagus. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) with biopsy is the gold standard tool for diagnosis. Here, we report a rare case of a lower.

Although similar papules have been described in the setting of lymphedema from other causes, this is the first report of verruciform xanthoma associated with Milroy disease or leaky capillary syndrome History. Verruciform xanthoma is a wart-like lesion that most commonly occurs in the oral mucosa. It was first described as a xanthoma-like nevus by Sachs in 1903 .In 1971, Shafer coined the term verruciform xanthoma while describing 15 cases in the oral cavity .These lesions were reported as asymptomatic, pale or hyperkeratotic, with a pebbly surface and verrucous appearance Xanthomas are flat, yellow plaques or nodules consisting of abnormal lipid deposits. Clinically, xanthomas can be classified as eruptive, tuberoeruptive, tuberous, tendinous, verruciform, or plane. Plane xanthomas are the most common and include xanthelasma palpebrarum, xanthoma striatum palmare, and intertriginous xanthomas Verruciform xanthomas occur primarily in the mouth, but sometimes in the anogenital region, which may cause clinical confusion with genital warts. We present a case where a 70-year-old man presented with an asymptomatic warty lesion on the scrotum and verruciform xanthoma was confirmed by histopathological results.
