Abstract:

Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH) is one of the most common autosomal codominant diseases. Patients with FH have elevated Low-Density Lipid Cholesterol (LDL-C) levels which lead to cardiovascular complications at an early age and a reduced life expectancy. Low-Density Lipoprotein Receptor (LDLR) gene mutation is the most common genetic cause of FH. In this study, a 56-yearold female with definite FH was reported based on clinical algorithms. Whole exome sequencing identified a heterozygous LDLR mutation (c.1599G>A), which is pathogenic according to ACMG guidelines. Sanger sequencing was performed in family members, and the mutation site was cosegregated with the disease in the family.
