The article presents a report on serum cholesterol as a predictor of capillaropathy. The association of serum cholesterol with large vessel pathosis is well known. An elevated level of circulating cholesterol has long been recognized as a diagnostic indicator of the arterioselerotic process. More recent evidence also shows that hypercholesteremia antedates and thus predicts the clinical manifestations of atherosclerosis. This report uniquely investigates yet another aspect of serum cholesterol and vascular disease, namely, the relationship of cholesterol levels and microangiopathy.
