We present the case of a 12-year-old girl with familial hypercholesterolemia and coronary artery disease. She underwent triple-vessel coronary artery bypass grafting with bilateral pedicled internal mammary artery grafting without adverse events. Pediatric patients with familial hypercholesterolemia may present with premature coronary atherosclerosis requiring coronary artery bypass grafting.,In situ internal mammary artery grafts should be the graft of choice.
