Abstract: 
Despite the fact that most people are worried about having high cholesterol levels, low cholesterol may actually be associated with adverse behavioral effects such as aggression and depression. The aim of this survey was to show whether there was a significant relationship between cholesterol and triglyceride with depression. The level of cholesterol and triglyceride was measured in 80 depressed patients referred or admitted to Sina hospital whose depressive symptoms were assessed by DSM IV criteria. The control group comprised of normal subjects. Cholesterol and triglyceride measurements were done on blood samples of the two groups. There was no significant relationship between age, sex and triglyceride levels with depression (P>0.05), but there was a significant relationship between low cholesterol and depression (P<0.05). It can be concluded that there is significant relationship between low cholesterol and depression whereas it is not the case for triglyceride
