In the article by Dr. Robert R. Linton entitled "Two-Stage Operation for Carcinoma of the Transverse Colon Producing Duodenocolic Fistula: Report of Two Cases," which appeared in the March issue (Arch. Surg.48:197, 1944), credit for the first successful extirpation of the head of the pancreas for carcinoma of the head of the pancreas was given to Dr. Whipple, whereas it should have been given to Dr. Alexander Brunschwig, who published the first report of a case in which this operation was used (Surg., Gynec. & Obst.65:681, 1937).
