Aim: The study aims at investigating lactate, lactate dehydrogenase(LDH) and cystatin-C (Cys-C) as markers for early diagnosis of TTN. Patients and methods: Blood samples taken within 1 hour after birth from 40 neonates who later developed TTN and from 40 neonates who did not develop TTN as a control group. Eighty neonates who were admitted to the NICU at Tanta University Hospital with gestational age above 37 weeks during the period 12 months (from December 2011 to May 2012, were included in this study.
