1. A significant increase in the activity of serum cholinesterase and concentration of dextran sulphate precipitable lipoproteins, cholesterol and triglycerides was observed in sixteen children with a diagnosis of nephrotic syndrome when compared with the values obtained in 22 other normal children of comparable ages. 2. In 7 children with nephrotic syndrome serum concentrations of beta-lipoprotein and cholinesterase were markedly higher in the acute stage compared to the convalescent stage. A working hypothesis is proposed to explain the hyperlipoproteinemia in nephrotic syndrome.
