To the Editor.—
I was surprised to find under the section, "Clinical Characteristics," the remark, "Symptomatically, the patients may have a slight fever and a moderately high erythrocyte sedimentation rate" since fever and sedimentation rate can hardly be described as symptoms.I was also surprised to note that "ischiatic x-ray films, if positive, are incidental." A "positive" x-ray film would be one depicting calcification, which is quite germane rather than incidental.
