† Nine cases of cutaneous xanthogranuloma in adults are reported. These lesions were histologically indistinguishable from the xanthogranulomas in infants and children (juvenile xanthogranuloma), and, like those in the young, they were not associated with abnormalities of serum lipids. Unlike juvenile xanthogranuloma, however, in our small sample there was no concomitant involvement of the eye in adult xanthogranuloma.
