Xanthelasma are benign growths that can form on the eyelids. Although there are some known factors associated with the growth of xanthelasma, like abnormal blood fat levels, there are also a number of unknown factors that can cause xanthelasma to form.
Xanthelasma are characterized by a waxy yellow color, similar to the color of plaque that builds up on the teeth. They can form on both the upper and lower eyelids and usually form on the inner corners of the eyelids. Over time, xanthelasma can increase in size and may eventually spread across the whole eyelid.
