During 712 consecutive autopsies on liveborn infants, body weight and the weight of single organs were systematically recorded. These data have provided the material for a statistical investigation. Tables and graphs have been prepared to allow a statistical estimate of the normal value of the weight of organs in the first year of life, as a function of body weight and/or the subject's age. It has been shown that in this period, the weight of an organ varies as a linear function of these two independent variables, whose action is sometimes synergic and, more rarely, in conflict in determing the weight of the organ.
