To the Editor:
—Since my paper "Conjunctival Blood Flow in Sickle-Cell Disease" was submitted for publication (Arch. Ophthal. 66:824, 1961), I have encountered an article by Drs. W. J. Geeraets, and D. Guerry, in the Southern Medical Journal 53:949, 1960, in which they describe the occurrence of conjunctival microaneurysms in patients who have sickle-cell disease. A more recent article by Dr. David Paton, Arch. Ophthal. 66:90, 1961, has described the presence of these characteristic microaneurysms of sickle-cell disease occurring in the inferotemporal part of the bulbar conjunctiva.
