Necrobiotic xanthogranuloma (NXG) is a rare granulomatous disorder which presents as yellow plaques and nodules, commonly in the periorbital region. It is important to look for paraproteinemia by serum electrophoresis, as there is a 10% risk of developing multiple myeloma in these patients. This is the first report of NXG presenting as a nasal dorsum swelling. We wish to highlight the importance of histopathological diagnosis, serum electrophoresis and bone marrow biopsy in cases with similar clinical features.
