Since the introduction of satisfactory methods of studying the sulphur partition, a number of cases of cystinuria have been studied without, however, providing a basis for an adequate explanation of the condition. Excellent reviews1 of the cases so far studied have been published. The metabolic data are confusing and contradictory.2, 3
Our purpose was to study the effects of diets high and low in sulphur on the cystine excretion in a patient with cystinuria. As will be seen this could be accomplished only indirectly. On account of the intimate connection between the nitrogen and sulphur metabolism, it was desirable to
