Plasma chitotriosidase activity (ChT) was previously proposed to quantify severity of sepsis. In a complex surgical case, with prolonged sepsis and consistently high ChT, we found that the least increased values occurred in stages of extreme illness, with profound hypocholesterolemia. ChT needs better characterization before becoming a reliable biomarker of septic evolution.

Abstract

Plasma chitotriosidase activity (ChT) was previously proposed to quantify severity of sepsis. In a complex surgical case, with prolonged sepsis and consistently high ChT, we found that the least increased values occurred in stages of extreme illness, with profound hypocholesterolemia. ChT needs better characterization before becoming a reliable biomarker of septic evolution.
