The discussion will focus mainly upon deficit and surplus of measurable bile pigment of the bile or excreta in relation to the amount anticipated from destruction of mature circulating erythrocytes. These are invariably present in some degree, even in the normal state, but are of great significance in hematologic diseases associated with dyserythropoiesis. Principal attention will be given to the phenomenon of "early labeling" of bile pigment and its heterogenetic character. The ratio:
varies quite consistently as between normal erythropoiesis and that in various dyserythropoietic states. Considerable attention will be given to the possible factors responsible for low ratios, including
