Abstract

The purpose of this report is a statistical evaluation of the free and total cholesterol values found for three groups of patients at the Seaside Hospital from June to September 1935. These patients, ranging in age from the neonatal period to 12 years, were about equally divided between the sexes. The pathologic conditions represented were (1) infection of tonsils and adenoids, (2) rheumatic fever, including rheumatic carditis, and (3) miscellaneous acute and chronic infections, including osteomyelitis, pleurisy, rickets, diabetes, acute glomerulonephritis, asthma, residual poliomyelitis, malnutrition, eczema, pylorospasm, torticollis and bronchiectasis. Little work has been done in the determination of values for free and combined cholesterol in the blood of children. Recently Sperry1 reported free and total cholesterol values for heparinized blood plasma of children in the neonatal period. The range was from 25 to 61 mg. and from 71 to 190 mg. per hundred cubic centimeters for free and
