Verruciform xanthoma is a rare benign mucocutaneous lesion. Extra oral sites are also reported mainly on vulva, groin, penis and scrotum. Histopathologic diagnosis is diagnostic and confirmative. Histopathology shows subepithelial lipid laden foamy histiocytes associated with hyperkeratosis, parakeratosis, papillomatosis and elongation of rete ridges. Here we report a case of Verruciform xanthoma in groin.
