Abstract

To the Editor:—  The abstract of the report of a child 33 months of age with primary fibrosarcoma of the lung (J. A. M. A.170:1243 [July 4] 1959) has come to my attention, as well as the statement contained therein to the effect that "this is the youngest case of this type of sarcoma of the lung ever recorded." There is on record a case of an infant from whom a fibrosarcoma of lung was removed at the age of 2 days (Robb, D., Brit. J. Surg.46:173 [Sept.] 1958). This patient was reported as being alive and making good progress 10 months after the operation. This information is being submitted so that the facts as already documented in The Journal may be corrected.
