The edema-mobilizing effect of intravenous infusions of a protein solution and of dextran was studied in a patient with chronic glomerulonephritis and hypoproteinemic edema. Infusion of a 12% serum protein solution resulted in a small, transitory elevation of the protein values, but did not cause any elimination of the edema. Infusions of a 10% salt-free dextran solution had a certain diuretic effect which, however, did not seem to be of essential practical importance.
