Hyperlipoproteinemia Type I


CSP: rare familial condition characterized by massive chylomicronemia and decreased levels of other lipoproteins; due to deficiency of lipoprotein lipase, an alkaline triglyceride hydrolase which catalyzes an important step in the extrahepatic removal of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins from the blood.,MSH: An inherited condition due to a deficiency of either LIPOPROTEIN LIPASE or APOLIPOPROTEIN C-II (a lipase-activating protein). The lack of lipase activities results in inability to remove CHYLOMICRONS and TRIGLYCERIDES from the blood which has a creamy top layer after standing.,NCI: A genetic disorder of lipoprotein metabolism caused by mutations in the LPL and apolipoprotein (apo) C-II genes. It is characterized by increased levels of chylomicrons and triglycerides in the blood.
