Aims: Determine the prevalence of dyslipidemia in patients attended in the Parakou University teaching Hospital Biochemistry Laboratory (Republic of Benin).

Study Design:  Cross-sectional retrospective study.

Place and Duration of Study: Biochemistry Laboratory of the Borgou/Alibori Regional University Teaching Hospital (CHUD-B/A) in Parakou (Republic of Benin); period from July 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015.

Methodology: Data were collected on the basis of the biochemical test register; they were related to lipid parameters. The criteria of the National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III were used to identify dyslipidemia.

Results: The frequency of lipid profile request was 8.38%. Sex ratio (Men/Women) was 0.79. The mean age of the target population was 46.84 ± 13.61 years. The different types of dyslipidemia identified were: hypercholesterolemia (37.60%), HDL hypocholesterolemia (39.20%), LDL hypercholesterolemia (39.40%), hypertriglyceridemia (11.17%), mixed hyperlipidemia (6.30%) and atherogenic dyslipidemia (3.00%). HDL hypocholesterolemia was associated with male sex (P = .000) whereas LDL hypercholesterolemia was associated with age (P = .03).

Conclusion: Dyslipidemia prevalence high as identified in the study in the CHUD-B/A Biochemistry Laboratory. Studies among the general population should be conducted in order to identify the extent of those types of dyslipidemia in Benin.
