A 26-year-old woman presented for evaluation of multiple, red-yellow papules that had been appearing over the course of 2 months on the extensor surfaces of the upper extremities, dorsal aspects of the hands, thighs, and buttocks. Serum lipid evaluation showed hypertriglyceridemia in a patient with a recent history of pancreatitis. A diagnosis of eruptive xanthomas was made based on clinical, laboratory, and histopathologic findings.
