Abstract: An operator means a bounded linear operator on a complex Hilbert space. The familiar Fuglede-Putnam theorem asserts that if *A* and *B* are normal operators and if *X* is an operator such that , then . We shall relax the normality in the hypotheses on *A* and *B*.

Theorem 1. *If A and* *are subnormal and if X is an operator such that* , *then* .

Theorem 2. *Suppose A, B, X are operators in the Hilbert space H such that* . *Assume also that X is an operator of Hilbert-Schmidt class. Then* *under any one of the following hypotheses*:

(i) *A is k-quasihyponormal and* is invertible hyponormal,

(ii) *A is quasihyponormal and* is invertible hyponormal,

(iii) *A is nilpotent and* is invertible hyponormal.
