Abstract

Xanthomas are benign slow-growing dysmetabolism tumours consisting of histiocytes laden with lipid droplets of cholesteryl ester and, sometimes, triglycerides. Two forms of appearance have been identified: as dyslipidemic xanthomatosis with coexisting alteration of lipids, or as normolipidemic xanthomatosis without any lipid level alterations.

Involvement of the upper area of aerodigestive tract by this entity is very rare and there are only a few cases in the literature.

We report a case of dyslipidemic xanthomatosis with epiglottic and basilingual involvement that produced oropharyngeal foreign body sensation with dysphagia. Evolution was favourable after laser resection.

Resumen

Los xantomas son tumores benignos dismetabólicos de crecimiento lento constituídos por histiocitos cargados de pequeñas gotas lipídicas de colesterol esterificado y, a veces, triglicéridos. Se han individualizado dos formas de aparición: como xantomatosis dislipémica en la que coexiste una alteración de los lípidos, o bien como xantomatosis normolipémica.

La afectación de las vías aerodigestivas superiores por esta entidad es rara y hay pocos casos recogidos en la literatura.

Presentamos un caso de xantomatosis dislipémica con afectación basilingual y epiglótica que debutó con sensación de cuerpo extraño orofaríngeo y disfagia y evolucionó favorablemente tras la resección con láser.
