    Eight infants had paired measurements of plasma aldosterone and plasma renin activity while being treated for congestive heart failure. There is parallelism with aldosterone and renin activity in the presence of a hyperactive renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. Six patients had plasma renin activity and plasma aldosterone measured after commencing captopril and we have shown biochemical blockade of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system.
