Abstract

© 2019 Although high levels of Lp(a) have become increasingly recognized as a risk factor for coronary heart disease (CHD), its association with very premature CHD (ie, younger than 30 years) is unclear. We present a case of a young woman with very high levels of Lp(a) in whom accelerated CHD is unlikely to be accounted for by traditional risk factors.
