Serum lysozyme activity has been determined in 30 patients of suppurative pulmonary diseases CS’-group), 50 patients of pulmonary tuberculosis (‘T group), 30 healthy subjects (‘C group). The serum lysozyme activity was significantly higher in cases of *S’ & ‘T’ group in comparison to ‘C’ group, but the difference between patients of ‘S 1 & ‘T’ groups was not found to be significant. The serum lysozyme levels were significantly higher in sputum positive cases as compared to sputum negative cases in group L T’. Further, the levels were not related to age and sex in *S’ group patients but the mean activity was relatively higher in patients with toxic manifestations. A direct correlation was also observed between the serum lysozyme activity and amount of daily expectoration in the “S’ group patients.
