A 37-year-old man without previous medical history working as a lock keeper was seen in our unit for a progressive painless subcutaneous flesh coloured infiltration of the lower anterior area of the neck growing slowly over 5 months. Clinical cutaneous findings showed a non pruriginous yellowish papulonodular eruption mimicking xanthomas (Figs. 1 and 2). No other clinical abnormalities were found. A cutaneous biopsy specimen was performed. Histopathological examination revealed, under a normal epidermis, a dense lymphoplasmocytoid infiltrate involving the dermis with periadnexal and perivascular reinforcement (Figs. 3 and 4).
