INTRODUCTION: This study aims to evaluate the possible roles of paraoxonase (PON), arylesterase (ARE), ischemia-modified albumin (IMA) and albumin-adjusted IMA levels in patients with Bell palsy.Keywords:
METHODS: Thirty patients with Bell palsy and 30 healthy control subjects were included in the study. Serum PON, ARE, IMA, albumin-adjusted IMA and lipid profiles were measured.
RESULTS: Paraoxonase and ARE levels of the patient group were significantly lower than controls (p<0.001, p<0.001, respectively) and IMA, albumin-adjusted IMA levels were significantly higher than controls (p<0.001, p=0.002, respectively).
DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: This study suggests that oxidative stress may have a role in the pathophysiology of Bell palsy.
