    Article, Congrès - En anglais

    Identification and management of heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia. Workshop. USA, 1992/07/20.

    Heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is completely expressed at birth and early in childhood by significant elevations in plasmas total and low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels.

    High density lipoprotein cholesterol can be low in such FH children; the triglyceride levels are usually within the normal range.

    Screening of children for heterozygous FH using a LDL cholesterol level is reasonably efficient in families with known FH, but for general population screening, the LDL cholesterol level is often too nonspecific.
