To the Editor:
—Your correspondent Dr. Wartenberg (The Journal, July 21, 1951, page 1152) appears to have overlooked the fact that the association of a tonic pupil and the absence of tendon reflexes was first described in England by Markus in 1906. The reference is C. Markus, Trans. Ophthalm. Soc. U. K., 1906, 26, 50. The evidence that Markus first drew attention to the combination of signs often referred to as Adie's syndrome appears to be indisputable.
