Figure 2: (a) MRI image of the brain shows hyperintensities in middle cerebellar region suggestive of cholesterol deposits. (b) Histopathology of thelesion with H and E stain x10 magnification shows collection of foamy histiocytes, numerous cholesterol clefts (arrows) surrounded by foreign body type of multinucleated giant cells in a background of stromal fibroblastic proliferation, consistent with tendon xanthoma. (c) Histopathology of thelesion with H and E stain x40 magnification shows collection of foamy histiocytes, numerous cholesterol clefts surrounded by foreign body type of multinucleated giant cells (arrows) in a background of stromal fibroblastic proliferation consistent with tendon xanthomas
