A cross sectional study was done to determine serum lipid and lipoprotein cholesterol in pre-eclamptic women in their third trimester, taking normal pregnant women in third trimester as controls. The values were compared in patients of different parity. It was observed that serum triglycerides (TG), cholesterol (Chol), LDL-c, VLDL-c, phospholipids (PL) and total lipids (TL) were significantly raised, while HDL-c, was significantly lower in pre-eclampsia compared to normal pregnancy. TG and VLDL-c were found to be increased significantly with parity.
