Xanthogranuloma is a benign, asymptomatic and self-healing disorder of non-Langerhans cell histiocytosis clinically characterized by multiple yellowish papules. This condition predominantly occurs in infancy and childhood, as it is also known as juvenile xanthogranuloma. Only around 10% of xanthogranuloma cases manifest in adulthood. Unlike juvenile xanthogranuloma, adult xanthogranuloma usually presents with solitary cutaneous lesion which does not resolve spontaneously. A 34-year-old man presented with multiple dusky red to brownish colored, dome shaped nodules on the right inguinal area which persisted for 8 years. Through the histopathological findings which revealed infiltration of multinucleated giant cells including foamy Touton cells, xanthogranuloma was diagnosed. Herein, we report an unusual case of adult-onset multiple xanthogranuloma.
