Familial hyperlipidemia is a rare condition with malignant behavior, resulting in premature coronary artery disease. We report a 14 years old case with undertreated plasma cholesterol levels. Graft selection due to growth potential and patency rates was one of the important problems in this patient. Two arterial grafts and one saphenous vein were implanted for coronary revascularization.
