Abetalipoproteinemia is a rare genetic disorder. A 5-month-old Saudi boy presented with chronic diarrhoea and failure to thrive since 3 months of age. He was cachectic. His peripheral blood picture showed many acanthocytes and he had very low lipid profile. He improved on medium chain triglyceride (MCT) formula and administration of fat soluble vitamins.
