Resumo: Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is an autossomal dominant disorder associated with high levels of plasma cholesterol with a frequency of 1/500 heterozygous 1/1million homozygous. The increased level of circulating LDL cholesterol leads to lipid accumulation in tendons (xanthomas) and arteries, accelerating the process of atherosclerosis and increased risk of premature coronary heart disease (pCHD). FH is mainly due to loss of function mutations LDLR gene or APOB gene. Gain of function mutations in PCSK9 gene, or even in others genes yet to be described, are a rare cause of FH
