Here we report a 42-year-old man, who presented with a 7-month duration of shiny yellowish papules and easy bruising on the back of both hands. Histopathological and immunohistochemical examination revealed a homogenous eosinophilic dermal colloid material which stained with PAS, amyloid P, and Congo red.

We discuss the differential diagnoses of this condition and underline the fact that typical clinical findings may avoid unnecessary workup for more serious metabolic disorders.
