Introduction
Acne vulgaris is a multifactorial chronic inflammatory disease that is increasingly recognized in adult women.

Aim
To investigate a relationship between plasma lipids profile and acne in women and a correlation between selected clinical features of acne (severity, age of onset, location of lesions and the presence of comedones) and lipids profile.

Material and Methods
Sixty-four adult women with post-adolescent acne and 20 healthy controls were included in the study. Plasma total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides (TG), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels were determined in all the subjects.

Results
Adult women with acne had statistically significantly increased levels of TC, TG and LDL-C compared to healthy controls (p < 0.05). The level of HDL-C did not differ between the two groups. There was no relationship between higher levels of TC, TG and LDL-C and a clinical picture of acne.

Conclusions
Acne in adult women is likely to be associated with increased levels of TC, TG and LDL-C. This abnormality seems to be important in the pathogenesis of adult acne and could be a result of high fatty acid diet. Performing a lipid profile examination in women with acne should be taken into account when screening patients and followed by appropriate dietary recommendations.
