Aims:  We investigated whether plasma lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) predicts outcome in hypothermia (HT) treated term infants with moderate/severe hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy (HIE) and additionally whether LDH differs between infants with evidence for acute and non-acute perinatal insults and postnatal collapse (PNC). Methods:  Data from HT treated infants with HIE (n=39) were analyzed retrospectively. Adverse outcome was defined as a Mental and/or Psychomotor Developmental Index (Bayley Scales of Infant Development II), at 18 months <70. The likely timing of insult onset was assessed in infants with an LDH sample obtained within 6h of birth or PNC (n=20). Results:  LDH differed between the favourable/adverse outcome groups at the end of HT treatment (median (IQR) 1540 (1400-1950)U/L vs. 3555 (3003-8705)U/L, (p<0.01)). All infants (n=22) with LDH <2085U/L had a favourable outcome while 6 of 11 infants with LDH≥2085U/L had an adverse outcome. LDH in those who died (n=4) was higher than the favourable outcome group (5090 (2915-12222)U/L, (p<0.01) but sampled earlier. Early LDH differed significantly (p<0.01) between infants with evidence for acute or non-acute insults or PNC. Conclusion:  These results offer a biomarker, with high negative predictive value in the assessment of outcome in HT treated term infants, needing prospective validation. © 2012 The Author(s)/Acta Paediatrica © 2012 Foundation Acta Paediatrica.
