is considered as an ideal target for laser therapy because of its superficial location.5 Therefore, different ablative and non-ablative lasers have been tried in photoablation of xanthelasmas

All patients should be screened by age 20 Strongly suspect FH (and obtain lipid measurements) in patients with: * Tendon xanthomas at any age (most common in Achilles tendon and finger extensor tendons, but also can occur in patellar and triceps tendons) * Tuberous xanthomas or xanthelasma
in patients younger than age 20 to 25 * Arcus corneae in patients younger than age 45 Strongly consider a diagnosis of FH and obtain further family information in patients with the following LDL levels: * [greater than or equal to] 250 mg/dL in those age [greater than or equal to] 30 * [greater than or equal to] 220 mg/dL in those age 20 to 29 * [greater than or equal to] 190 mg/dL in those age <20 FH, familial hypercholesterolemia; HDL, high-density lipoprotein; LDL, low-density lipoprotein.
Autopsy was performed and external examination revealed xanthelasma
