The lipid changes in the inheritable foam cell reticulosis of mice discovered by Lyons, Hulse, and Rowe have been reexamined. The major abnormality in thymuses from homozygous-abnormal animals has been identified as an increase in the concentration (per milligram of protein) of sphingomyelin and cholesterol. This increase is associated with normal sphingomyelin-cleaving activity. The lipid compositions of the liver and spleen in the homozygous-abnormal animal and of the thymus in the heterozygous-abnormal mouse are normal. The disorder appears to be chemically analogous to those forms of human sphingomyelin lipidosis (Niemann-Pick disease) that are not accompanied by a decrease in tissue sphingomyelinase.
