dysbetalipoproteinemia

 [dis-ba″tah-lip″o-pro″tēn-e´me-ah]
the accumulation of abnormal low-density lipoproteins (β-lipoproteins) in the blood.
familial dysbetalipoproteinemia familial hyperlipoproteinemia, type III.

[MIM*107741]
hyperlipoproteinemia characterized by increased plasma levels of LDL, β-lipoproteins, pre-β-lipoproteins, cholesterol, phospholipids, and triglycerides; hypertriglyceridemia induced by a high carbohydrate diet, and glucose tolerance is abnormal; frequent eruptive xanthomas and atheromatosis, particularly coronary artery disease; biochemical defect lies in apolipoproteins. There are many varieties, one of which is caused by mutation in the APOE gene on chromosome 19q.

1. the accumulation of abnormal β-lipoproteins in the blood.

familial dysbetalipoproteinemia  an inherited disorder of lipoprotein metabolism caused by interaction of a defect in apolipoprotein E with genetic and environmental factors causing hypertriglyceridemia; its phenotype is that of a type III hyperlipoproteinemia.
