Autosomal recessive hypercholesterolemia

Autosomal recessive hypercholesterolemia (ARH) is caused by mutations of the LDLRAP1. The name is a bit misleading as we know today that the more genes of the lipid metabolism are altered and the more severe the mutations the more prominent the clinical picture.
