To the Editor:
—To supplement and confirm Dr. Bissell's letter in the August 18 issue of The Journal, regarding second attacks of poliomyelitis, a detailed histopathological report of the central nervous system in his case will be found in a paper by Faber and Silverberg in the Journal of Experimental Medicine for April 1, 1946 (Vol. 83, pp. 339-340, case 8). We also recovered poliomyelitis virus from a sample of the cord.The material had been submitted to us by Dr. Frederick Proescher of Santa Clara, who performed the autopsy. We regret that at the time we prepared our manuscript we had not been informed of Dr. Bissell's interest in the case, and for this reason failed to give him proper credit.
