Severe hypercholesterolemia and phytosterolemia with extensive xanthomas in primary biliary cirrhosis: role of biliary excretion on sterol homeostasis



Severe hypercholesterolemia and phytosterolemia with extensive xanthomas in primary biliary cirrhosis: role of biliary excretion on sterol homeostasis



Journal of Clinical Lipidology 8(5): 520-524



Primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) is an autoimmune, chronic, cholestatic liver disease that affects primarily women. PBC is commonly associated with hypercholesterolemia that has been associated with cholestasis. We report an exceptionally high blood cholesterol and phytosterols with just mild cholestasis indicating a selective defect in sterol biliary secretion in a patient with PBC.
