Papular xanthoma is a rare normolipemic xanthomatous skin disease which primarily occurs in adults. While this rare disorder has been documented in children, all but one reported in the literature had a normal lipid profile. We report a 10-year-old girl with multiple papule xanthomas on her face that had an abnormal lipid profile. To our knowledge this is only the second reported case of papular xanthoma in the pediatric population with an abnormal lipid profile.
