Abstract

Severe hypercholesterolemia results most commonly from heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, familial combined hyperlipidemia, and polygenic hypercholesterolemia. All can lead to very high cholesterol levels and early coronary heart disease aggregating in families, but few of these persons are properly diagnosed and treated and many still die of early heart attacks. Diagnostic criteria and a stepwise treatment algorithm are presented.
