To the Editor:—
Regarding the communication from Dr. Killoran on the impedance angle test for thyrotoxicosis, which appeared in Queries and Minor Notes in the issue of October 12. I note that in your answer no reference was made to a publication by Wilson and myself in the Lancet, showing that no correlation existed between the basal metabolic rate and the impedance angle test. The article referred to is Robertson, J. D., and Wilson, A. T.: A Combined Study of the Basal Metabolism and Impedance Angle in Thyrotoxicosis and Myxedema, Lancet2:1158 (Nov. 24) 1934. Our observations anticipated those of the American workers by some six months.
