Abstract: Cutaneous xanthomas arising in chronic lymphedema are rare. We present a case of verruciform xanthoma involving the left foot and toes of a 10-year-old boy who had developed a primary lymphedema (lymphedema praecox) in the left lower extremity. Laboratory studies demonstrated a normal lipid profile.
