What is it about?

In patients with Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia, therapy starts at so young an age that it is imperative to balance the short-term lipid target with the long-term negative effects of therapy.

Why is it important?

we described a personalized therapeutic regimen as a paradignatic case management in Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia aimed at life saving and acceptable quality of life.


I hope that this article encourages other physicians to feal free to personalize therapies, in rare forms of inherited dyslipidemias, applyng guide lines if and when appropriated for the patient's long perspective.
