After burn injury various metabolic and functional changes occur in the body. Serum transaminases, alkaline phosphatase and amylase were measured in 30 patients with thermal injury over the first 10 days of post burn period. No clear correlation between elevated serum enzymes except amylase and the burn size was observed on admission. Transaminases values increased till 5th day then declined on 10 th day, while alkaline phosphatase and amylase activities continued to rise till day 10. It is concluded that monitoring serum ALP and amylase in post- burn period has valuable prognostic importance.
