Background: Systemic arterial hypertension and dyslipidemia are major risk factors for cardiovascular disease, and have been shown to be associated with oral diseases. Objective: The objective of this study was to estimate apolipoproteins and lipid profile in patients with oral diseases and systemic arterial hypertension. Methods: This study was conducted at Medical City Hospital during the period from October 2014 until the end of April 2015. Sixty arterial hypertensive patients were enrolled in this study; their age range was (38-50) years and they were compared with 30 healthy subjects as control group. Apolipoproteins A1, B, and lipid profile were estimated for each subject. Results: The serum levels of apolipoprotein B, total cholesterol, triacylglycerol, and low density lipoprotein cholesterol were higher while apolipoprotein A1 and high density lipoprotein cholesterol levels were lower in hypertensive patients with oral diseases as compared to the control, which was statistically significant (P < 0.05). Conclusion: Hypertensive patients with oral diseases had dyslipidemia and need measurement of blood pressure and lipid profile at regular intervals to prevent comorbidities.
