Abstract

Aim: The aim of this study was to determine the correlation between plasma phthalate and pancreatic lipase and a-amylase levels in pubertal gynecomastia patients with high plasma levels of di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP) and its metabolite mono (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (MEHP) which are known endocrine disrupting chemicals and to evaluate the possible effects of phthtalates in pancreas.
