Correspondence: Cancer Said to Be Caused by a Single Injury

JAMA. 2019;322(10):985. doi:10.1001/jama.2018.15506

To the Editor:—I am interested to note your editorial of August 12 on the matter of claims for disability said to have resulted from cancer caused by a single injury. In my opinion this editorial is timely but scarcely goes far enough. Traumatic cancer attracted my interest for a rather brief period following the death of the late Dr. James Ewing. Dr. Ewing had been interested in this matter for years and at his death a number of unfinished cases were turned over to me for completion.
