Abstract

A 8-year-old boy was referred for evaluation of ejection systolic murmur. On examination multiple xanthomas and xanthelesmas were noted. Investigations confirmed familial hypercholesterolemia and severe aortic stenosis in background of tricuspid aortic valve. We report a case of severe aortic stenosis in background of morphologically normal valve, a rare complication of heterozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia.
