Twenty-six determinations of plasma and blood volumes were done in 7 malnourished Jamaican children, on admission to hospital and as they recovered. There was a fall in plasma volume expressed per unit of body weight but no change in blood volume. There were significant correlations between the plasma volume changes, the weight deficit, and the venous haematocrit.
