Hypoalphalipoproteinemia is a high-density lipoprotein deficiency, inherited in an autosomal dominant manner.[1]

Hypoalphalipoproteinemia has an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance.

It can be associated with LDL receptor.[2]

Associated regions and genes include:

Name OMIM Locus Candidates
HDLCQ1 606613 9p ABCA1 (Tangier disease)[3]
HDLCQ2 607053 8q23
HDLCQ3 607687 16q24.1 Lecithin cholesterol acyltransferase deficiency (LCAT)
HDLCQ4 610239 4q32
HDLD3 605201 11q23.3 APOA1

Niacin is sometimes prescribed to raise HDL levels.
