Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) is an enzyme (EC present in a wide variety of organisms, including plants and animals. Lactate Dehydrogenase catalyses the interconversion of pyruvate and lactate with concomitant interconversion of NADH and NAD+. LD can also catalyze the oxidation of hydroxybutyrate, Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH) is occasionally called Hydroxybutyrate Dehydrogenase (HBD).

Lactate Dehydrogenase enzyme is also found in cerebrospinal fluid where high levels of lactate dehydrogenase in cerebrospinal fluid are often associated with bacterial meningitis. High levels of Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH) enzyme can also be found in cases of viral meningitis, generally indicating the presence of encephalitis and poor prognosis.
