This study was aimed to check alterations in lipid profile after burn injury. This study clearly showed the importance of measuring serum cholesterol, TG, LDL and HDL in burn patients and targeting changes that occur in their levels along burn course, which may have beneficial effect in protecting organ damage, increasing survival rates and improving burn outcome. This study was carried out on 25 patients with various degrees of burn. Lipid profile was done at 1st, 2nd and 3rd week after burns. Results showed decrease in serum cholesterol, serum LDL and serum HDL, while increase in serum triglyceride level in burned patients compared to normal subjects.
