The subjects who were admitted to the Orthopaedic Clinic of Basra General Hospital, were in the ages ranging from 40-75 years (17 males and 33 females). On the other hand 50 apparently healthy subjects (20 males and 30 females) who were in ages ranging from 38-70 years were participated as control group. Among two sex group serum vitamin C was significantly decreased (p<0.05) in male patients as compared with female. In conclusion, we have shown that there is a decrease in serum level of vitamin C in male patients and this decrease may be due to taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs which can lower the level of vitamin or their diet was poor in vitamin C.
