Abstract

Plasma levels of melanocyte stimulating hormone (MSH) and 11 hydroxy corticoids were determined in 567 hospitalized patients who were subdivided according to the anatomical system and disease process involved as well as by the prescribed medication. No correlation was found between plasma levels of MSH and cortisol. Patients with brain trauma were found to have the highest levels of MSH.
