Familial hypercholesterolemia is a genetic disorder caused by a mutation in low density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor gene. The homozygous type of the disease is rare and causes tendon xanthomas and coronary artery disease during the early years of life. Because of that, some of these patients needs early coronary revascularization. We presented 13-year- old patient who underwent coronary artery bypass graft due to familial hyper- cholesterolemia and repair of supravalvular aortic stenosis at the same time.
