Abstract

Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolaemia is a genetic disorder which usually presents with early cardiovascular disease ranging from premature ischaemic disease, including myocardial infarction to aortic root stenosis. A 21 year old Bangladeshi male presented with exertional chest pain and breathlessness. He was diagnosed as a case of Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolaemia. His angina symptoms were due to underlying valvular aortic stenosis which is a rare presentation of Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolaemia.
