Abstract

Sixteen slice multidetector cardiac CT findings of a homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia pediatric patient are presented. Multidetector cardiac CT followed by invasive coronary angiography depicted a variety of diagnostic findings involving the aortic root and coronary arteries. This case illustrates the full capabilities of multidetector cardiac CT in monitoring aortic root and coronary artery disease in pediatric patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia.
