Abstract: Familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH) is an inherited disorder of cholesterol metabolism caused by mutations in LDLR, APOB and PCSK9 genes. FH has a estimated frequency of 1:500 in most European countries. Based on this frequency Portugal should have about 20000 cases of FH, however in our country this disorder is under-diagnosed.
