—In The Journal, January 10, page 143, appeared an abstract of a paper by Edward C. Vogt with this title, published in the American Journal of Roentgenology and Radium Therapy, November, 1930. The author wishes the description of this sign to read as follows: "A constant finding was the dense zone at the growing edges of the bones, which was usually evident adjacent to any epiphysis but most marked at the end of long bones of the extremities and at the anterior ends of the ribs." Eight cases of clinical lead poisoning showed this sign.
