Abstract

In normal infants 2.1 to 3.2 months of age and in those 4.8 to 10.6 months of age, plasma aldosterone concentrations were, respectively, 88±42 and 61±43 ng. per 100 ml. (S.D.) and the aldosterone secretion rates were 75±21 and 70±36 μg per 24 hours. Older infants, 12.5 to 18.5 months of age, had plasma aldosterone levels of 17±7 ng. per 100 ml. and aldosterone secretion of 73±43 μg per 24 hours. The plasma aldosterone concentrations of the two younger groups were significantly higher than that of the 12.5-to 18.5-month-old children (p
