Twenty-eight patients with familial lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase deficiency have been reported to date. We report a new Italian case who presents the clinical and biochemical characteristics of the disease. Typical disc-shaped high density lipoproteins (d = 1.063-1.21 g/ml) were detected by electron microscopy. An abnormal distribution of apolipoproteins in the different lipoprotein fractions was found by sodium dodecyl sulphate polyacrylamide electrophoresis.
