The lead article by McCue and Cohen1 on Freud's physician-assisted death is eminently scholarly, but we submit that the title is ambiguous, and the careless or biased reader might conclude that there was an equivalence to physician-assisted suicide. Euthanasia is an applicable term, but in its current range of use, a writer must also define the meaning.
