What is Xanthelasma?

They are yellow or white flattened, fatty deposits that generally tend to form around the upper and lower inside corners of the eye.

They can occur more often in woman than men and may possibly be hereditary, being caused by cells that uptake fat and deposit these from the microcirculation around the affected area to form a localised plaque.
