To the Editor: It appears that there may be
some discrepancy in the data reporting in the study by Dr Anselmo and colleagues1 concerning fetal loss associated with excess thyroid
hormone exposure. We would appreciate it if the authors could clarify a point
of confusion. The number of infants born to affected mothers appears to be
31 from the text, 45 from Table 2, and 25 from Figure 1.
