Abstract

Background: Familial apo C-II deficiency is a rare hereditary disorder frequently caused by lipoprotein lipase (LPL) and APOC2 gene mutations. To date, less than 30 patients with familial apo C-II deficiency with 24 different mutations have been identified in the literature. Here, we describe two familial chylomicronemia syndrome cases in infants with two novel mutations of the APOC2 gene.
