To the Editor.
—My attention was recently called to an interesting article entitled "Bilateral Sixth-Nerve Palsy: A Rare Complication of Water-Soluble Contrast Myelography," written by Miller et al and published in the April Archives (1982;100:603-604). On reading the article, I was chagrined to realize that the authors did not know what water-soluble myelographic contrast agents were. The agent that they described, iophendylate, is Pantopaque, which is a mixture of ethyl esters of isomeric iodophenylundecylic acids containing bound organic iodine. Thus, even the title is inaccurate and casts a disparaging cloud on the article.
