Abstract

Familial lecithin cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) deficiency (FLD) is characterized by the appearance of corneal opacity, anemia, proteinuria progressing to chronic renal failure and abnormalities in the composition of plasma lipoproteins. No established therapy currently exists for this condition. We report here a new case of FLD caused by two novel mutations in the LCAT gene in which, for the first time, aggressive therapy with angiotensin II receptor blockers and lipid-lowering drugs showed benefit in blood pressure, lipid abnormalities, proteinuria and also kidney function, probably delaying progression to renal failure
