Answer

Four cases of cutaneous verruciform xanthomas in association with lymphedema have been cited in the literature. Reports have suggested that verruciform xanthomas may be a rare reactive phenomenon found in persons with common cutaneous conditions. Because verruciform xanthoma is considered by some authorities to be a reactive condition, the link between these 2 entities remains unclear at this time. [55, 56, 57]
