Özet

Objective: Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), a tetrameric protein composed of four monomers, is expressed as five isoenzymes. Serum LDH isoenzymes may be useful in differential diagnosis of ascites etiology since tissue damage releases isoenzymes contained therein, leading to a change in their pattern.
