This name is applied to slight elevations of the skin of a yellowish colour. They occur mostly on the eyelids, where they appear as firm yellow patches, which are usually quite flat, but may be slightly tuberculated. They consist of firm connective tissue in which finely divided fat granules are abundantly present. The latter give the opaque yellow character to the lesion.
