To the Editor:
—In The Journal, May 28, 1910, page 1780, is a report of a case of "Rare Fetal Monstrosity" by Dr. Aranow, in which he says he has found but one case reported in medical literature of "entire absence of abdominal parietes" in a new-born child. I call attention to a case reported by me in American Medicine, vol. ii, page 208, the case being almost identical with the one mentioned by Dr. Aranow, the chief difference being that in my case there was entire absence of sexual organs and anal aperture.
