Lipoproteins have gradually become important in clinical medicine, as markers of new diseases and as models for better understanding of cholesterol and triglyceride metabolism. The internist frequently encounters several types of hyperlipoproteinemia and must be aware of hypolipoproteinemia as a sign of unusual genetic abnormalities, such as abetalipoproteinemia and Tangier disease.
