Abstract Twenty four patients of classical marasmus and kwashiorkor alongwith equal number of healthy controls were selected for the study. Their serum amino acid-patterns analysis re-vealed a mean ratio of glutamate to alanine in fasting samples of normal individuals to be 0.33, while it was 9.3 in kwashiorkor and 1.6 in marasmus. This differences in controls, kwashiorkor and marasmus was statistically sig-nificant. This observation may explain evolution of marasmus and kwashiorkor in children with similar diets. On the basis of the present obser-vation it is postulated that in kwashiorkor, the
