To the Editor:—
In Dr. Lennox's article on the petit mal epilepsies, which appeared in the Dec. 15, 1945 issue of The Journal, he rightfully points out the close relationship between the pyknolepsies and the petit mal epilepsies. Dr. Jelliffe and I had come to the same conclusion as far back as 1935, when we reported our findings in the April issue of the Archives of Neurology and Psychiatry (33:752). At that time we had reviewed all the cases of pyknolepsy reported in the literature and added our own observations.
