Abstract: A 10-year-old boy died of a myocardial infarction; he had homozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia. Unrecognized tendon xanthomas previously had been removed. His parents and siblings were found to have elevated cholesterol levels. The screening of at-risk children allows the early recognition of hypercholesterolaemia and intervention in the development of atherosclerosis.
