Abstract

We identified by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry the unusual substance cis-4-hydroxycyclohexanecarboxylic acid (4-HCH) in the urine of a child. Urinary excretion of 4-HCH and intestinal bacteria were both suppressed by neomycin treatment. We propose that 4-HCH is a by-product of bacterial metabolism.
