The pathogenesis in this classification group is believed to be a combination of elevated serum-lipoprotein levels leading to hyperlipidemia (high blood lipids) and hyperglycemia (low blood sugar level levels). Main hyperlipidemia is caused by an overproduction of enzymes involved in lipid metabolism, such as lipophilic lipase and lipolysis.

It looks like a yellowish, flat, soft plaque on the left side of the upper lipoprotein lipids, which is normally present in the same location as the main hyperlipidemia. It is also present in a range of other types of lipophilic lipase and lipolysis plaques.
