Abstract: Aims to describe the serum leptin levels of patients with skin tag. Materials & Methods this is descriptive study which was conducted from October 2017 to February 2018 at the Tumor and Dermatosurgery outpatient Department of Dr. Mohammad Hoesin General Hospital Palembang. Sample study was obtained with consecutive sampling. A total of 40 patients with skin tag who met the inclusion criteria were included in the study. Demographic data, body mass index (BMI), and serum leptin were measured. Result elevated serum leptin (42.5 %) and obesity (62.5 %) were observed among patients with skin tag. Majority patient with increase serum leptin (88 %) is patient with multiple skin tag Conclusion almost half patients with skin tag had elevated serum leptin levels. Majority patient with increase serum leptin is patient with multiple skin tag. The higher levels of leptin in skin tag patients may be implicated in the development of skin tag.
