We have received several letters concerning the cover photograph in the September issue of the ARCHIVES. While none of the readers disagree that it was an interesting clinical case, the letters all express dismay that the photograph appeared on the cover. The journals are sent through the US mail without a wrapper, and many readers receive the ARCHIVES at their home address. We apologize for this and will be more careful in our selection of cover photographs in the future.
