We report a case of type V hyperlipoproteinemia with xanthoma eruptivum in a 30-year-old male. He had diffuse erythematous yellowish papules on both extremities and the buttock. The laboratory findings showed the increased cholesterol and the triglyceride. Serum electrophoresis showed an increase in pre-β and chylomicron, suggesting type V hyperlipoproteinemia. The biopsy specimen of an erythematous yellowish colored papule on the right knee showed many aggregates of foam cells without Touton giant cells.
