Forty subjects, aged 15-45 years were randomly selected. Subjects were separated age wise into 1st group (15-30 years) and 2nd group (31-45 years). They were divided into groups A & C. Group A included twenty patients of acute & transient psychiatric disorder while group C includes 20 age & sex matched normal controls. Serum total cholesterol (TC), Serum triglyceride (TG), Serum HDL-c & Serum phospholipid were done by using colorimetric methods. Serum LDL-c was calculated by Friedwald equation. Results obtained were analyzed by using students `t` test & level of significance was done. Altered lipid metabolism was found in patients of acute & transient psychotic disorders with decreased Serum TC, LDL-c and phospholipids.
