To the Editor: Based on computed tomography (CT), the study of King Tutankhamun's family by Dr Hawass and colleagues1 purported an age of 35 to 45 years for the KV55 male (Table 1), older than previously thought. Prior studies that refute this claim were dismissed and no substantiation for a much older age range was given in the text or online content.
