Two case studies of adult white men with agammaglobulinemia and splenomegaly are reported. One has been subject to repeated bacterial infections of the skin and respiratory tract and has had several attacks of severe diarrhea. The other patient has had recurrent small bowel obstruction probably due to inflammatory lymph node enlargement, but has otherwise been virtually free of infection. The occurrence of this syndrome in adults is discussed.
