Patients with isolated hypertriglyceridemia usually present with recurrent abdominal pain, pancreatitis, eruptive xanthomas, lipemia retinalis and hepatosplenomegaly. We describe the diagnosis and treatment of an infant with severe hypertriglyceridemia. The child was found to be heterozygous for two novel mutations in the lipoprotein lipase gene.
