Aim: The aim of this study was to determine distribution of serum cholinesterase activity according to age and sex

and serum cholinesterase activity of patients who were operated in Malatya Turgut Ozal Medıcal Center.

Material and Method: In this study, serum cholinesterase activity of 96 (44.2%) male and 121 (55.8%) female

patients who were operated in Turgut Özal Medical Center was determined by enzyme-spectrophotometric method.

Results: Enzyme activities were 7092±226 U/ml and 6804±207 U/ml in males and females, respectively (p=0.58).

The enzyme activity in the 0-15 years age group (8680±525 U/ml) was significantly higher that in the over 41 years

age group (6567±330 U/ml) of males (p=0.01). However, there were no significant differences among age groups in

females (p=0.06). The enzyme activity in the 16-40 years age group of females (6335±308 U/ml) was significantly

lower that in the 16- 40 years age group (7316±334 U/ml) of males (p=0.04). Enzyme activity was found to be

under the normal range (
