Elevations in serum lactate dehydrogenase occur from myocardial infarction, liver disease, pernicious and megalolastic anemia, pulmonary emboli, malignancies, and muscular dystrophy. Since Lactate dehydrogenase is present in many body tissues, its diagnostic usefulness is limited. Tissue specificity may be enhanced by isoenzyme analysis. A combined analysis of LD and CK isoenzymes provides a definite diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction.
