Abstract

Eruptive and tubero-eruptive xanthomas arising at the site of previous minor skin injury are described in two patients with type IV and type III hyperlipidemia, respectively. In one case, the lesions appeared following a cat scratch, while in the second, massive bee stinging preceded the appearance of a constellation of xanthomas.
