Disease Hypobetalipoproteinemias

Name Hypobetalipoproteinemias
Synonyms Familial Hypobetalipoproteinemia | Hypobetalipoproteinemia | Hypo beta Lipoproteinemia | Hypo beta Lipoproteinemias
Definition Conditions with abnormally low levels of BETA-LIPOPROTEINS (low density lipoproteins or LDL) in the blood. It is defined as LDL values equal to or less than the 5th percentile for the population. They include the autosomal dominant form involving mutation of the APOLIPOPROTEINS B gene, and the autosomal recessive form involving mutation of the microsomal triglyceride transfer protein. All are characterized by low LDL and dietary fat malabsorption.
