To the Editor.—  Has anyone called attention to the apparent error in the article "Corpus Luteum Hemorrhage" (239:2270, 1978)? In case 3 (middle column of p 2271), Drs Waxman and Baird state that the patient had a hysterectomy, but the last line of the case report says: "Normal menses has returned." Reminds me of that old column filler in the New Yorker magazine entitled "Our Forgetful Authors."
