Type IIa
Familial hypercholesterolemia
This may be sporadic (due to dietary factors), polygenic, or truly familial as a result of a mutation either in the LDL receptor gene on chromosome 19 (0.2% of the population) or the ApoB gene (0.2%).
this lead to increased in only LDL
because their is the problem in LDL recepter
