Introduction  Hyperlipidemia is an important metabolic disorder that is common among renal transplant recipients and contributes to the development of post-transplant accelerated coronary artery diseases. This study investigates the prevalence and risk factors of post transplant dyslipidemia in our center.  Materials and Methods  Retrospectively the records of 103 renal transplant recipients were evaluated at Sina Hospital in Tehran (Iran) between the years 2004 and 2007. The Patients� demographic data, underlying renal disorder and immunosuppressive drugs regimen along with their laboratory data including total cholesterol (TC), Triglyceride (TG), serum creatinin (Cr) and fasting blood sugar were recorded.  Results  Among the patients, there were 43 (41.7) females and 60 (58.3) males. The mean age (±SD) was 39.25± 13.9 years. The respective pre versus post transplantation lipid profile findings were: TC, 158±41 mg/dl versus 198±43 mg/dl, p<0.001; TG 152±78 mg/dl versus 195±83 mg/dl; p Conclusion  Renal transplant recipients are at a high risk of developing hyperlipidemia; therefore, they should be evaluated for risk factors.
