Levels of aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) and creatine kinase (CK) were estimated in serum and cerebrospinal fluid of 25 patients of stroke, and were correlated with severity of disease. 21 (84%) patients had ischemic stroke and four (16%) had hemorrhagic stroke. Serum and CSF AST levels were significantly elevated in the study group. The rise in CSF AST was more in the hemorrhagic subtype than in the ischemic subtype. Serum ALT and CSF LDH levels were also significantly elevated in patients with ischemic stroke. None of the enzyme levels were related to the severity of disease as assessed by the Glasgow coma scale.
