    Abstract

    A 10 year old boy with abetalipoproteinaemia is reported. His mother and grandfather suffered from familial hypobetalipoproteinaemia, but his father had a normal lipoprotein profile. This is the first report of abetalipoproteinaemia resulting from compound heterozygosity for abetalipoproteinaemia and familial hypobetalipoproteinaemia.
