Xanthalasma

What is Xanthalasma?

Xanthelasma is a sharply demarcated yellowish deposit of cholesterol underneath the skin. It usually occurs on or around the eyelids (xanthelasma palpebrarum, abbreviated XP). While they are neither harmful to the skin nor painful, these minor growths may be disfiguring and can be removed.

What causes Xanthelasma?

About half the people with xanthelasma have high cholesterol. You’re more likely to get these growths if you have:

  • High cholesterol or low cholesterol
  • Inherited high cholesterol (your doctor might call this familial hypercholesterolemia)
  • Liver disease called primary biliary cirrhosis, which can raise cholesterol levels

It’s most common among people whose families are from Asia or the Mediterranean.
