Our study surveyed 418 obese first grade elementary school children (279 male and 139 female), in seoul, and measured levels of serum total cholesterol, HDL Cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglyceride were measured in addition to the measurement of body weight and height. The following results were obtained. 1) Obesity index was catergorized into mild, moderate, and severe, and the percentage of mild was 6.8%, moderate 48%, severe 45.7% respectively in surveyed children. 2) The average level of total cholesterol was 166.60¡¾27.63mg/dl, HDL cholesterol 50.2¡¾20.68mg/dl, LDL cholesterol 82.23¡¾1.26mg/dl, triglyceride 176.61¡¾30.36mg/dl 3) Atherogenic index was calculated, and obtained value was 2.450.48. It showed higher statstical significance in boys than in girls (p<0.05) 4) There was no significant difference in average level of total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglyceride in accordance of the severity of obesity. 5) Statistical significance was found in different average levels of HDL cholesterol and atherogenic index according to obesity index. (p<0.05) 6) There was a statistical significance in the average values of Kaup index and Rohrer index in accordance with obesity index (p<0.000) 7) There was no correlation between abnormal levels of total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and LDL cholesterol and the severity of obesity. 8) Abnormal levels of triglyceride, atherogenic index, Rohrer and Kaup index had a statistical significance since their levels. 9) There was a correlation between atherogenic index and body measurement. Total cholesterol level showed correlation with obesity index, and HDL cholesterol with Kaup index and arm circumference.
