—Guy Whitehead, PhD, of the Section of Publications, Mayo Clinic, has written that in the communication titled "Trigeminal Neuropathy and Neuritis," by Norman P. Goldstein, MD, Joseph A. Gibilisco, DDS, and Joseph G. Rushton, MD (184:458 [May 11]), untoward effects were erroneously attributed to hydroxystilbamidine isethionate. "The drug responsible was stilbamidine isethionate. Inasmuch as the hydroxy form of stilbamidine has been supposed not to produce such reactions, the misstatement can be disadvantageous to potential users."
