Abstract

To the Editor:—  Dr. Irving Sherwood Wright of New York has called my attention to a report of his (Treatment of Adult Scurvy and Crystalline Vitamin C [Ascorbic Acid], Proc. Soc. Exper. Biol. & Med.32: 475 [Dec.] 1934), in which capillary fragility was reported as one of the signs of scurvy which responds to injections of cevitamic acid.Dr. Russell and I would have quoted this earlier observation in our recent paper (The Effect of Cevitamic Acid Injections on Capillary Resistance, The Journal, May 11, p. 1701) if we had been acquainted with it. It appears to be the first published report of the effect of cevitamic acid on capillary fragility. A complete report by Dr. Wright will soon appear in the Archives of Internal Medicine.
