The streptococcic agglutinating titers of the serums of 20 patients with glomerulonephritis were determined for a strain of streptococci recovered from the blood of a patient having acute rheumatic fever. All serums agglutinated in dilutions as high as 1:800. Five agglutinated at 1:800, ten at 1:1600, one at 1:3200, three at 1:6400 and one at 1:12800. The agglutinating titers of these serums were considerably higher than those found with the same strain with the serums of 110 normal individuals, of 50 patients with acute rheumatic fever, and of 300 patients with chronic arthritis. The relative height of the streptococcic agglutinating
