Abstract

Rare genetic lipid disorders affect the levels of cholesterol and/or triglyceride in the circulation and, if untreated, can often lead to severe multisystem complications. The field of rare lipid disorders is evolving and increasing awareness of these conditions, along with the systematic integration of recent advances or knowledge into clinical practice, is crucial to improve patient outcomes. The aim of this review is to provide an overview of selected rare genetic lipid disorders, focusing on the recommended diagnostic strategies and contemporary treatment and management options.
