Materials and Methods: A case-control study on 6 to 18 years old Metabolic syndrome patients, this investigation was performed in Birjand University of Medical Sciences, Cardiovascular Research Center. Thirty six Children were enrolled in a non-random sampling manner, and the data were analyzed using SPSS-13 using independent t-test and chi square. Results: A total of 36 Children entered the study (n=18 per group). The mean serum levels of vitamin D in metabolic and non-metabolic groups was 11. 61± 3. 79 and 14. 09± 6. 41 ng/ml (P>0. 05), respectively. The mean serum levels of vitamin D in the group with normal and abnormal triglyceride levels were 11. 05± 3. 80 and 14. 65± 6. 12 ng/ml, respectively (P<0. 05).
