Grütz-Bürger essential hyperlipemia type I has been diagnosed in a 4-week-old infant suffering from a hemangioma of the lower left eyelid. Metabolic investigations showed excessively increased serum fat levels. Funduscopy was consistent with lipemia retinalis.By reducing the fat intake to a maximum of 5 g/day, serum levels returned to normal. Further observation over 1 year has shown normal development of the child.
