Following the oral administration of Na22 the biologic decay of sodium and the total exchangeable sodium were followed with the use of a total body counter and a single daily urine sample. This proved to be a satisfactory method for studying the trend in body sodium. 2. The administration of cortisone 75 to 200 mg. per day to patients with long-standing rheumatoid arthritis was associated with sodium retention which did not occur with prednisolone in the dose range of 15 to 50 mg. per day. Fluid accumulation evidenced by a rise in body weight accompanied the sodium retention. 3. Prednisolone had a natriuretic effect in certain situations. ___MH
