To the Editor:—  In the editorial "Fungus Infections Complicating Antibiotic Therapy," which appeared in The Journal, June 21, 1952, page 762, mention is made that my co-workers and I reported six instances of pulmonary moniliasis. This notation is inserted in a paragraph in such a way that it would appear that these six instances followed the use of one of the antibiotics discussed in the article. I would like to correct this impression and note that all the patients studied had pulmonary moniliasis and received no antibiotic therapy and that each of these patients was studied in the era before aureomycin, chloramphenicol, and terramycin came into general use.
