Abstract

Mucoprotein (tyrosine) levels and lactic dehydrogenase activity were estimated in the serum of fifty children suffering from tuberculosis and 10 healthy controls. It was observed that various types of childhood tuberculosis showed raised values of serum mucoprotein ranging from 9.5 to 139 mgm% with maximum rise incases of tuberculous pleural effusion. Lactic dehydrogenase activity was also increased ranging from 132 to 560 I.U., with maximum rise in cases of tuberculous meningitis.
