Multicentric reticulohistiocytosis (MR) and multiple cutaneous reticulohistiocytomas (MCR) are exceedingly rare granulomatous conditions that belong to the reticulohistiocytosis spectrum of disorders. Reticulohistiocytoma usually presents as a firm, skin-colored, yellowish or reddish papule or nodule. We report here a case of multiple cutaneous reticulohistiocytomas in a young man for its rarity and to emphasize the importance of considering reticulohistiocytoma in the differential diagnoses of persistent yellowish plaques or nodules on skin.
