To the Editor:
—In the recent paper on angina pectoris and diabetes mellitus by Drs. Root and Graybiel (The Journal, March 21) I regret the omission of the name of the late Dr. Max Kahn, who was the first to call attention and emphasize the relationship of these two conditions (The Journal, Feb. 26, 1921). He stated that a remarkable feature of the anginal attacks in these cases is that they do not occur when the sugar tolerance is not exceeded, and that a high blood sugar will frequently cause recurrence of the attacks.
