In Reply.—Dr Bor is right: the correct term is "dysphagia lusoria," not "lusorum." (Whatever is "playful," or perhaps "erratic" or "inconsistent," about it is beyond this argument.) The authors of that article, as well as our copy editors and perhaps other readers, may all learn from Dr Bor's attentive reading the journal and dexterity with Latin declensions. After all, Ab uno disce omnes, don't they?
