A middle aged male patient came with multiple swellings over his body which were gradually increasing in number. He was asymptomatic for any other disease and was worried for cosmetic reasons. His examination was unremarkable except xanthelesma on all of his four eyelids and multiple swellings of varying size all over his body. His blood investigations including lipid profile, ECG and X-ray chest were normal. As this patient had xanthelesma it was presumed that the swellings on other parts of his body were a part of the same etiology namely xanthomas. However FNAC of the swellings surprisingly proved it to be lipoma. This case reports an uncommon distribution of lipomas all over the body in the presence of xanthelesma.
