Abstract

To the Editor:  —"Syndrome is a term applied to a group of symptoms occurring together regularly and thus constituting a disease to which some particular name is given." This is the definition in Black's Medical Dictionary.May I make a plea for the abandonment of the phrase "A and V syndromes" in favor of "A and V phenomena."
