ABSTRACT
Drinking milk is generally considered to fit in a healthy diet. In this case report however, it is demonstrated that drinking an excessive amount of milk in a relatively short period of time can form a serious health risk, mainly due to the extremely elevated level of triglycerides. To our knowledge, the levels of triglycerides that were measured in this patient are one of the highest ever reported. Moreover in this case report, etiology, diagnostic challenges and therapeutic options for such increased levels of triglycerides are discussed.
