We show that a nodal hypersurface X in 3 of degree d with a sufficiently large number l of nodes, , is algebraically quasi-hyperbolic, i.e. X can only have finitely many rational and elliptic curves. Our results use the theory of symmetric differentials and algebraic foliations and give a very striking example of the jumping of the number of symmetric differentials in families.
