Diffuse plane xanthoma is a group of plane xanthomas that appear as yellow-brown flat patches or slightly elevated plaques with a wide-spread distribution. Cutaneous xanthomas may occur either hyperlipoproteinemic or normolipoproteinemic states. Diffuse plane xanthoma with normolipoproteinemia is often associated with multiple myeloma, other reticulo-endothelial malignancies and monoclonal gammopathy of unknown significance(MGUS). We report a case of diffuse plane xanthoma associated with monoclonal gammopathy of unknown significance(MGUS) and normolipoproteinemia.
