Tendinous Xanthoma

A xanthoma is a hard nodule under the skin. These nodules are composed of accumulated lipids. Tendinous xanthomas commonly erupt over tendons such as the Achilles tendon and tendons of the fingers. It should be noted that they can erupt over other tendons and ligaments as well. Tendinous xanthomas are skin-colored and associated with elevated levels of LDL cholesterol. Familial hyperlipidemia is a genetic condition with elevated LDL cholesterol that we will review in a future slide.
Further information and an image of tendinous xanthoma is available in the Clinical Advisor. Available at: http://www.clinicaladvisor.com/dermatology/xanthoma-tendon/article/592290/. Accessed April 12, 2018.
