Abstract

To the Editor:—  I have read with great interest your leading editorial on "Senile Osteoporosis" in The Journal February 4, page 434.In 1930 I wrote a paper on this subject (Rosenfeld, Wilhelm: Ueber die Forme fruste der Osteomalacie, Med. Klin.26:421-422 [March 21] 1930). I am happy that other authors have in their own way succeeded in determining this subclinical form of osteomalacia. As therapeutic measures I used chiefly, besides calcium and vitamin D, subcutaneous injections of minimal doses of epinephrine (from 0.05 mg. to 0.1 mg. of epinephrine hydrochloride for each injection), and this remedy proved helpful in my hands.
