Hypercholesterolemia is a dyslipidemic syndrome which is characterized by an increase in total cholesterol and low density lipoprotein cholesterol levels. Familial hypercholesterolemia appears during childhood resulting in coronary artery disease between 30 and 50 years of age. In this study, we present a familial hypercholesterolemia case characterized by xanthomas and a quite early onset diffuse atherosclerosis resulting in supravalvular stenosis and coronary artery disease.
