In January 1937, we1 published a preliminary report on the study of liver function in rheumatoid arthritis. The paper included results of the Azorubin S liver function test in 100 patients. It was shown that 73 per cent of the severe cases revealed liver dysfunction as determined by this method. Aware that no single test gives an indication of all the functions of the liver, the above findings prompted continuation of this study, using other liver function tests for comparison. The results obtained in 50 unselected cases will be reported in this paper.
