The authors present the cases of 4 children who suffered from saccharose-isomaltose malabsorption. The clinical symptoms developed following artificial feeding. The diagnosis was made by the histological examination of small intestine samples and with the simultaneous measurement of disaccharide enzyme activity. The histological picture and activity of lactase enzyme were practically normal. The saccharose H2 breath test gave only in 1 case positive result. The treatment of the children required saccharose-free diet. The tolerance showed no improvement during the treatment.
