  Complete apo A1 deficiency is a rare genetic disorder that has been associated with premature atherosclerosis. We describe a family of Iraqi Mandaean background with complete apo A1 deficiency caused by a new nonsense mutation in the APOA1 gene. Interestingly, there were marked differences in the clinical presentation of the two homozygotes in this family. A 35-year-old woman presented with xanthelasmas and xanthomas but showed only minimal changes on cardiovascular examinations and no clinical symptoms. However, her 37-year-old brother was diagnosed with myocardial infarction at age 35. In addition, both the homozygotes had elevated C-reactive protein levels. The C-reactive protein levels increased three-fold during pregnancy, then decreased postpartum and further decreased with statin treatment. Cholesterol ester transfer protein mass was close to the upper reference range, whereas the activity was low, likely because of the lack of the substrate. Here, we characterize the phenotype and genotype of the first Middle Eastern family with apo A1 deficiency and compare and contrast the findings in the two homozygous siblings and review the previously reported cases of apo A1 deficiency.
