Primary or familial hyperlipoproteinemias are hereditary metabolic disorders in humans characterized by plasma increases of lipoproteins (carriers of exogenous lipids to the periphery) and their corresponding lipid constituents. Associated with these diseases are increased incidence of atherogenesis, circulatory disorders as myocardial infarction and stroke, pancreatitis, and xanthomas. The Fredickson-Lees system for classification defines the five types of disorders according to the increase in the specific lipoprotein. This study will be concerned with children of the Type II disorder.
