Altaf Hussain Chalkoo, Gowhar Yaqub Peerzada, Mirzada Bilal Ahmad.

Aim: The aim of this study was to analyse cardiovascular risk posed by dyslipidemia in patients with OLP.
Materials and Methods: This case-control study was based on 120 patients, visiting Department of Oral Medicine and Radiology: 60 with oral lichen planus and 60 controls which matched the cases in all demographic characteristics. The diagnosis of OLP was made on clinical examination and confirmed histopathologically by biopsy. The diagnosis was in accordance to the modified WHO criteria. Serum was analysed for: Serum Cholesterol, Triglycerides, HDL, LDL and VLDL.
Results: The Serum Cholesterol, Serum triglycerides, LDL and VLDL in OLP group were higher as compared with control whereas HDL in OLP group was low when compared with control group.
Conclusion: In conclusion, the results obtained indicate an association between OLP patients and dyslipidemia. The patients with LP therefore should be evaluated for cardiovascular risk posed by dyslipidemia.
