To the Editor:—  In the United Kingdom foreign letter in The Journal, March 14, page 1234, is a note on fall-out and leukemia. The statement is made that I131 has never been linked with leukemia. The New England Journal of Medicine (260:76-77 [Jan. 8] 1959) contains an account of the sixth reported case of leukemia after use of I131 for hyperthyroidism. One of the six reports was in The Journal (165:1558-1559 [Nov. 23] 1957).
