Abstract : A simple method for measuring body surface area of man is described. Surface areas of twenty Indian subjects were measured by this method and compared with the values calculated by using the height-weight formula of DuBois. It has been shown that the DuBois formula can be used for calculating body surface areas of Indians with the same degree of accuracy as obtained by DuBois with non-Indian subjects.
