We prove that a group G is Abelian whenever (1) it is nilpotent and the lattice of normal subgroups of G is isomorphic to the subgroup lattice of an Abelian group or (2) there exists a non-torsion Abelian group B such that the normal subgroup lattice of B × G is isomorphic to the subgroup lattice of an Abelian group. Using (2), it is proved that an Abelian group Acan be determined in the class of all groups by the lattice of all normal subgroups of some groups, e.g. if A is an Abelian group and G is a group such that Z × Aand Z × G have isomorphic normal subgroup lattices then A and A are isomorphic groups.
