Abstract: 

Objective: Fordyce's granules present as multiple yellowish white or white papules which can be seen within oral mucosa especially buccal mucosa and upper lip. They are ectopic sebaceous gland covered by epithelium. This condition is seen in approximately 82% of the population. Fordyce's granules can be diagnosed clinically and no biopsy is usually required. The main objective of this research was to compare blood cholesterol and triglycerides levels in subjects with Fordyce's granules and the ones without Fordyce's granules.
Subjects and Methods: In this case-control study 98 samples were allocated into two group: group A, included 50 subjects (45 males and 5 Females) with Fordyce's granules and group B, included 48 subjects (38 males and 10 females) without Fordyce's granules. Blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels were measured in both of groups. The results were analyzed by t-test.
Results: The results showed that there was no significant difference in blood triglycerides and cholesterol levels in both groups.
Conclusion: The finding of this study suggest that Fordyce's granules are only ectopic sebaceous glands with normal anatomical variations and their presence or absence has no relationship with the diagnostic index for increased blood triglycerides and cholesterol.
