Abstract
The proton matrix element of the isovectorscalar density, $<p\overline{u}u\overline{d}dp>/2M_p$, is calculated by evaluating the nucleon current correlation function in an external isovectorscalar field using the QCD sumrule method. In addition to the usual chiral and gluon condensates of the QCD vacuum, the response of the chiral condensates to the external isovector field enters the calculation. The latter is determined by two independent methods. One relates it to the difference between the up and down quark chiral condensates and the other uses the chiral perturbation theory. To first order in the quark mass difference $\delta m=m_dm_u$, the nonelectromagnetic part of the neutronproton mass difference is given by the product $\delta m <p\overline{u}u\overline{d}dp>/2M_p$; the resulting value is in reasonable agreement with the experimental value.
