A: T2-weighted images; B: FLAIR images; Sagittal T1-weight images and axial T2-weight image sequence showed atrophy of bilateral cerebellar; C: Sagittal T1-weighted images; D: Axial T2-weighted image.

Figure 4 A biopsy of this mass showed mostly foam cells and a few multinucleated giant cells in the fibrous tissue. A: Gross-excisional biopsy specimen from right tendon xanthomas measured 56 mm × 16 mm × 21 mm; B: Histopathology of the tendon mass. Soft tissue microscopic analysis results showed foam cells and a few multinucleated giant cells in the fibrous tissue.
