To the Editor.
—An omission was made in our article entitled "Potassium Iodide as a Cause of Prolonged Fever," that was published in the August Archives (1982;142:1543-1544). Potassium iodide has been proved efficacious in the treatment of cutaneous lesions of sporotrichosis (Sporothrix schenckii), and recent articles suggest its use in noncavitary pulmonary disease in nonimmunocompromised patients and as adjunctive therapy to surgery of solid lesions.1.
