To the Editor:—
Dr. Dudley C. Smith's article in The Journal, Nov. 13, 1943, page 694, hardly called for a reply, as the literature to which he referred obviously was a limited one; but, as the article has given rise to the claim that antimony products other than fuadin have proved unsuccessful in the treatment of creeping eruption, may I refer you to early reports on their use appearing in various quarters and prompting my own warning, to which he referred, that not all cases respond to antimony therapy and may therefore not have the same causative organism:Cawston F. Gordon: J. Roy. Army M. Corps, December 1929.Cawston, F. Gordon: J. Trop. Med. & Hyg., Aug. 15, 1928, pp. 209, 210.
