Abstract: Juvenile xanthogranuloma (JXG) is a type of benign histiocytic proliferative disorders seen in first two decades of life. It is a relatively uncommon benign cutaneous fibrohistiocytic lesion. Clinically, it presents as a papule or nodule which can either be solitary or can be yellow-brown in colour and firm in consistency. Usually, it is located in the face and neck. Sporadically, it can involve internal organs which can lead to serious complications. Differential diagnosis of this entity should be kept in mind whenever young patients presents with solitary nodule as it is a benign condition and only treatment warranted with local excision of the lesion.
