The Holmesian enthusiast will rejoice that the term "brain fever" is again in good repute and is accepted by the medical fraternity. The very fact that the staid Journal of the American Medical Association has published an article bearing the title "Brain Fever" has stripped criticism of all weapons. The loyal Holmesian no longer needs to feel apologetic for the nomenclature of Dr. Watson intended to describe a rather unusual and fortunately rare clinical entity.—E. J. Van Liere, A Doctor Enjoys Sherlock Holmes, New York, Vantage Press, Inc., 1960.
