Xanthoma disseminatum (XD) is a rare benign non-X-histiocytic disorder of unknown aetiology. We report a 37-year-old man who presented with XD preceded by a decade of cranial diabetes insipidus, with associated type IIb hyperlipidaemia and computed tomographic evidence of hepatic involvement. A review of the literature is also included.
