The aim of this project was to determine the significance of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), ß2 microglobulin (ß2M) and tumor markers in the diagnosis of lymphoma. For this purpose, 10 patients were taken for study, Median age 55 (35-75), male 7. Histopathologic diagnosis was B-cell lymphoma in 4 (50%), T-cell Lymphoma in 3 (37.5%). 2 patients (20%) were diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Diseases sites were para-aortic nodes (52%), cervical (8%), peripheral nodes (33%), others 6%. The patients were tested for LDH and ß2microglobulin levels in addition to tumor marker analysis.LDH and ß2 microglobulin are prognostic indicators. They are also helpful in monitoring the disease during therapy by ascertaining the tumor burden.
