Abstract

Abstract: The cutaneous markers associated with dyslipoproteinemia are reviewed in the context of the current view of lipid and lipoprotein metabolism. The utility of determining the plasma levels of lipoprotcins and certain apoproteins in children or adults with xanthomas or xanthelasma is discussed. We hope that early identification and appropriate treatment of such patients will reduce the morbidity and mortality from the two major complications of dyslipoproteinemia—atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and pancreatitis.
