The author describes the syndrome of familial hypercholesteremic xanthomatosis, which was first described by Thannhauser and Magendantz (1938) and at about the same time by Carl Mueller. He gives an excellent clinical discussion and family trees of patients with this disease, from which it is evident that the different clinical features may occur in monosymptomatic or polysymptomatic form. The book is written in Danish with an English summary of five pages.
