  • Forty‐six patients with xanthomatosis and elevated very low density hpoproteins (VLDL) levels (in different types of hyperlipoproteinaemia) were classified on the basis of the WHO criteria and the cholesterol, triglyccride ratio in VLDL. A large majority (31/46) of the patients referred to the Department of Dermatology could be classified as hyperlipoproteinaemia type III, only 8/46 as type IIB and 7/46 as type IV/V.
