The present study was designed to estimate the activity of lactate dehydrogenase ( LDH ) in the urine of spontaneous aborted women and to evaluate the effect of some accompanied diseases such as; chronic hypertension and Toxoplasma Gondii infection on LDH activity . The comparison of 20 spontaneous aborted women was done with control groups of 20 healthy pregnant and 20 age-matched non-pregnant women. The results of this study showed a significant increase (p value=0.03 ) in urine LDH activity of aborted women compared with control groups. A significant increase (p=0.001) was recorded as well in LDH activity of aborted women with age of 30-45 years compared to 15-29 years group. The present study also revealed a significant increase (p=0.001) in LDH activity of aborted women accompanied with chronic hypertension and Toxoplasma Gondii infection.
