To the Editor: —
Dr. Dalitsch is quite correct in emphasizing the dental changes that occur in radium poisoning and I agree that these characteristic areas of focal necrosis may appear long before any of the other lesions. The sclerotic changes mentioned in my article are considered to be part of the findings of radiation osteitis. Any support from the dentists would be most welcome. In an article directed toward dentists, the dental changes should be pointed out more specifically as Dr. Dalitsch has done in his letter.
