Abstract

To the Editor:  —In his article on congenitally absent gallbladder in The Journal, August 27, Dr. Golob refers to my article entitled "Cholecystography and Lyon Meltzer Test in a Patient with a Congenitally Absent Gallbladder" (Am. J. M. Sc. 173:682 [May] 1927). I sincerely appreciate the honor Dr. Golob confers on me by quoting my article, but I believe that he missed the crux of the situation, because the surgeon, as I had stated in my article, had very carefully examined for dilatation of the biliary ducts, but no dilatation of the ducts could be found. The B bile (the bile which is supposed to come from the gallbladder) could therefore not have come from dilated ducts.
