Abstract

Harry I. Katz, MD, senior author of the clinical note titled "Stevens-Johnson Syndrome: Report of a Case Associated With Culturally Proven Myoplasma pneumoniae Infection" (199:504-506 [Feb 13]) has written that "In the article, we claimed that our case was the first report of M pneumoniae isolation in Stevens-Johnson syndrome; however, there are two similar case reports in the foreign literature which precede our date of publication:

"Reinhart, U.: Erythema exsudativum multiforme und andere Komplikationen wahrend liner Endemie primar atypischer Pneumonien durch Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Schweiz Med Wschr96:1027-1032 (Aug 13) 1966."
