Cosmetically disturbing xanthomas can be removed surgically, also by laser, curettage or ablation with an electrical sling. If necessary, dabbing with trichloroacetic acid (e.g. as finished drug: Solco Derman or as Rezetpur:trichloroacetic acid solution 10/20/35/50% (NRFl 11.133.)).
General therapyThis section has been translated automatically.
Detection and treatment of the metabolic disorder. First of all, dietetic measures and lifestyle modifications (weight reduction, abstinence from nicotine, increase physical activity) should be taken and, in the absence of improvement, adjustment to lipid reducers should be made.

Note(s)This section has been translated automatically.
The lipoproteins of plasma consist of lipids (triglycerides, fats, cholesterol and phospholipids) and apolipoproteins. Disorders of lipid metabolism are often found together with a metabolic syndrome, obesity, impaired glucose tolerance or insulin resistance, hypertriglyceridemia, reduction of HDL cholesterol and arterial hypertension.
