To the Editor:
—The article "Hiccups in Coronary Thrombosis Relieved with Phrenic Crush," by Rubin, Albright, Bornstein and Schwimmer, which appeared in The Journal of Aug. 11, 1951, states: "Review of the literature fails to mention this severe complication in any detail." May I call your attention to my paper "Hiccups as a Complication of Acute Coronary Artery Occlusion," which appeared in the Annals of Internal Medicine in July, 1939 (page 187).
