Aim: To assess the lipid profile in pediatric SLE (pSLE) patients in active disease state and compare it with inactive state. Methodology: It was an observational study carried out in the Department of Pediatrics, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU), Shahbagh, Dhaka-1000, Bangladesh from January 2013 to June 2014. A total 30 patients fulfilling the ACR 1997 criteria were enrolled in this study. Age and sex matched 15 controls were also included. Lipid profiles were measured at diagnosis, at 3 months follow up and at 9 months follow up. Results: At the time of diagnosis, pSLE patients’ mean triglyceride level and HDL cholesterol levels were significantly abnormal. At 3 three months follow up, when disease activity was high and patients were on high dose steroid therapy, there was increased total, LDL and HDL cholesterol level. At 9 months follow up when most of the patients had inactive disease and were on low dose steroid, all the lipids were within normal range. Comparison of active disease group with inactive disease group at 9 months found significant improvement of total cholesterol, triglycerides and HDL cholesterol levels. Conclusion: Control of SLE seems to be the most important factor in normalizing the lipids.
