To the Editor:—
In the article March 26 by Dr. George B. Hassin there are references, both in the heading of the article and in the text, to nerve injuries caused by intravenous injections of dextrose. After reading the article I am at a loss to understand why dextrose was included as part of the cause of these injuries, since the case records seem to indicate quite clearly that the injuries were incident to the injections and not to the substance injected.
