Background: Psoriasis-related inflammation is linked to dyslipidemia, a significant risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Recognizing the link between psoriasis and dyslipidemia may significantly impact the treatment. This research is to find the association between psoriasis and dyslipidemia among Bangladeshi people.

Materials and methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted in Delta Medical College and Hospital during the period of June 2021 and May 2022. 170 patients with psoriasis were selected aged between 30-50 years of both sexes. Lipid profile test was done for the study populations. After overnight fast, the patients were asked to return early morning and 3 cc of blood of them send to laboratories. Data were processed and analyzed with the help of the Microsoft Office Excel Software.

Results : Among 170 psoriasis patients, 52.94% were from the capital city Dhaka, and about 47% were from the rest of the country. From the Lipid Profile Test (Serum) test, 37% of individuals with psoriasis had dyslipidemia.

Conclusion : This research found that psoriasis patients were at increased risk for dyslipidemia. For this reason, it is crucial to regularly check blood lipid levels in all psoriatic patients to detect dyslipidemia and its potential consequences at an early stage.
