Abstract

Objective: The measurement of levels of transition metals and electrolytes is of considerable interest in the etiology of brain tumors. Material and Methods: Iron (Fe) and copper (Cu) and electrolytes such as sodium (Na) and potassium (K) levels were studied in 27 patients diagnosed with primary brain tumor and 25 normal healthy age and sex matched controls. Result: Significant decrease was observed in serum iron and sodium, serium copper and potassium were increased. Conclusion: Measurement of Serum level of sodium, Potasium, Iron and Copper level significance in the assement of primary brain tumor.
