In Reply.—I appreciate the interesting contributions Drs Walling, Benski, and Brenner have made to the growing body of literature on unusual medical conditions. I would like to add one of my own: "medical journalist's headache." This is a stress-induced condition brought on by having to find and report medical news from the hubbub of often-conflicting medical meetings, press conferences, and news releases, without unduly alienating any authority who disagrees with the quoted sources.
