Abstract: Familial hypertriglyceridemia (FHTG) is an uncommon primary (genetic) dyslipidemia. FHTG is characterized by moderately elevated serum triglycerides, usually in the absence of significant hypercholesterolemia and rarely manifests in childhood. We report an eight-month-old boy incidentally diagnosed as a case of FHTG due to lipemic serum (patient was admitted for malaria with anemia). He had elevated serum triglycerides with normal serum cholesterol, but had no symptoms related to the primary disorder (FHTG).
