The formation of xanthomata in tendons occurs typically as part of a familial disorder associated with an elevation of the total plasma cholesterol. In those cases where the tendinous deposits are small in size and few in number, the cholesterol level is usually only moderately raised, extensive deposits being more commonly associated with much higher levels. It is therefore of interest to have encountered a patient with a severe degree of xanthoma tendinosum whose plasma cholesterol was in the normal range.
