Serum lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) levels were studied in children with HbSS and HbSC in a single institution, and their relationship to cerebral vasculopathy as assessed by transcranial Doppler scanning (TCD). All children with HbSS (n = 97) and HbSC (n = 18) who underwent a TCD scan in 2006 were studied. LDH levels were higher in HbSS patients than HbSC (581 IU/l vs. 305 IU/l, P < 0.001). In children with HbSS, LDH correlated significantly with haemoglobin, reticulocytes, aspartate… CONTINUE READING
