Introduction: In India also the prevalence of coronary heart disease is increasing. It is essential to identify and manage risk factors for coronary heart disease in order to prevent its development in asymptomatic individuals (primary prevention) as well as to avoid its recurrence in patients with established disease (secondary prevention). Abnormalities in plasma lipoproteins and derangement in lipid metabolism rank as the most firmly established and best understood risk factor for CHD. Aims and Objectives: To determine the association of abnormal lipid levels with coronary heart disease (CHD) patients. Materials and Methods: The present study was conducted at Government Medical College and Hospital, Aurangabad. Lipid profile of 60 Coronary Heart Disease patients admitted with first episode of coronary heart disease in ICCU were compared with 60 healthy apparently normal age, sex matched individuals. Results: it was observed that abnormal lipid levels were significantly associated with CHD patients. Except in triglycerides and VLDL levels in male group which were increased but were not statistically significant in CHD patients as compared to control group. Conclusion: abnormal lipid levels were significantly associated with coronary heart disease (CHD) patients.
