Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) deficiency is an extremely rare congenital metabolic disorder with an accumulation of chylomicrons in the blood. We encountered a patient with an LPL deficiency leading to multiple bone xanthomas associated with hyperlipidemia. Radiographs and MRI of the humerus and femur revealed symmetrical bone lesions, and there is a possibility that these symmetrical lesions may therefore be a characteristic feature for this disorder.
