 What is Xanthelasma?

Xanthelasma palpebrarum are soft, superficial, yellow-orange papules, most commonly found on the medial upper eyelids. They are often symmetrical and can appear in individuals with normal lipid levels, though they may indicate hyperlipidemia and an increased risk of occlusive vascular disease. A lipid profile determination is recommended for all patients with xanthelasma.

Types of Xanthelasma

1. Xanthelasma Palpebrarum:

  • Description: Yellowish cholesterol deposits that form under the skin around the eyelids.
  • Characteristics: Soft, flat, yellowish plaques.
  • Location: Upper and lower eyelids.

2. Xanthelasma Disseminatum:

  • Description: Rare form presenting multiple yellowish-brown papules.
  • Characteristics: Lesions vary in size and occur on the face, neck, trunk, and flexural areas.

3. Eruptive Xanthelasma:

  • Description: Sudden appearance of yellowish-orange papules.
  • Characteristics: Itchy lesions associated with lipid abnormalities.
  • Location: Buttocks, shoulders, and extensor surfaces of limbs.

4. Tuberoeruptive Xanthelasma:

  • Description: Raised yellowish-brown to red-brown nodules.
  • Characteristics: Elevated lesions often associated with hyperlipidemia.
  • Location: Knees, elbows, and buttocks.

Treatment Options

1. Topical Treatments:

  • Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA): Controlled chemical injury to remove xanthelasma.
  • Cryotherapy: Freezing lesions with liquid nitrogen.

2. Laser Therapy:

  • CO2 Laser: Vaporization of lesions with minimal scarring.
  • Pulsed Dye Laser: Targets blood vessels, reducing redness and promoting clearance.

3. Surgical Excision:

  • Incision and Curettage: Removal of cholesterol deposits through incision.
  • Elliptical Excision: Removal with surrounding skin, followed by stitches.

4. Electrosurgery:

  • Electrodesiccation: High-frequency electrical current to destroy tissue.
