Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH) Range identifies the range category of the highest LDH value measured prior to treatment. LDH is a nonspecific marker for testicular cancer that is elevated in some germ cell tumors. This data item refers to the Pre-Orchiectomy range.
LDH (Lactate Dehydrogenase) is a Registry Data Collection Variable in AJCC. LDH (Lactate Dehydrogenase) Pre-Orchiectomy Range is used to assign the S Category Clinical and was previously collected as Testis CS SSF# 10.
0 Within normal limits
1 Less than 1.5 x N
(Less than 1.5 times the upper limit of normal for LDH)
2 1.5 to 10 x N
(Between 1.5 and 10 times the upper limit of normal for LDH)
3 Greater than 10 x N
(Greater than 10 times the upper limit of normal for LDH)
4 Pre-Orchiectomy lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) range stated to be elevated
7 Test ordered, results not in chart
8 Not applicable: Information not collected for this case
(If this information is required by your standard setter, use of code 8 may result in an edit error.)
9 Not documented in medical record
