Xanthelasma (or Xanthelasma Palpebrarum) is a sharply demarcated yellowish deposit of cholesterol underneath the skin, usually on or around the eyelids. Although not harmful or painful, these minor growths may be disfiguring and can be removed. They are common in people of Asian origin and those from the Mediterranean region.

Xanthelasmata can be regressed with a trichloroacetic acid peel, or completely removed with minor surgical skills.
