The study of the respiratory exchange in a case of biliary atresia was undertaken to see whether the presence of large quantities of unabsorbed fat in the intestine had any influence on the absorption of carbohydrate. It is held by many that fat is the fons et origo mali of many cases of marasmus and malnutrition in infancy. It has been shown that in these conditions fat can be absorbed from the intestine1 and metabolized in the tissues,2 but it has not been shown whether the presence of fat in the intestine is any impediment to the absorption of other forms of food. This case of biliary atresia seemed to afford an opportunity of seeing whether large quantities of unabsorbed fat in the intestine inhibited the absorption of carbohydrate.
