Abstract Cholesterol is a structural component of biological membranes and an immediate precursor for steroid hormones and bile acids. The liver is central to the production and removal of cholesterol‐rich lipoproteins and bile acids. The basic biochemical aspects of hepatic lipoprotein and cholesterol metabolism and how abnormalities in liver function impair these metabolic pathways are reviewed. Copyright
