207 Possible Causes for Cholesterol Increased, Tendon Xanthomas

  • Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia

    The condition is characterized by exceptionally high LDL cholesterol levels, cutaneous and tendon xanthomas, and valvular and supravalvular stenosis, and accelerated atherosclerosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Increasing the daily dose of atorvastatin from 40 mg to 80 mg did not significantly improve LDL-cholesterol levels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Xanthomas The high cholesterol level may result in the build-up of cholesterol deposits in the skin and tendons as well – xanthomas.[aoporphan.com]

  • Hypercholesterolemia

    Xanthomas are noted commonly on the Achilles tendons and metacarpal phalangeal extensor tendons of the hands.[emedicine.medscape.com] […] by an increase in dietary cholesterol.[academic.oup.com] Achilles tendon thickening is the early characteristic of Achilles tendon xanthomas.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Heterozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia

    Sixty-two patients had positive physical examination findings for Achilles tendon xanthomas.[ajronline.org] Low-density-lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol decreased 55 per cent with colestipol and niacin, whereas highdensity-lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol increased.[nejm.org] […] in the liver becomes esterified, the pool of free cholesterol declines, that increases the liver’s sense that it needs more cholesterol, increases the LDL receptor, decreases[chrismasterjohnphd.com]

  • Familial Hypercholesterolemia

    The case presented here is of a 48-year old male with large tendon xanthomas attributable to CTX.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Regardless of phenotype, lovastatin was more effective in lowering LDL-cholesterol, while gemfibrozil had a greater triglyceride-lowering and HDL-cholesterol-increasing effect[link.springer.com] Familial hypercholesterolemia is an autosomal codominant disorder associated with markedly elevated plasma concentration of LDL-cholesterol and increased cardiovascular risk[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Familial Hyperlipidemia

    His physical exam is normal and there is no tendon xanthomas or corneal arcus. Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is suspected.[knowledge.statpearls.com] […] in LDL (increased cholesterol, normal TGs).[quizlet.com] Image of tendon xanthoma, a pathognomonic physical examination finding in patients with familial hypercholesterolemia.
