It seems to us rather a curious decision or opinion of the attorney general of Iowa that a medical certificate obtained through misapprehension can not be revoked. A certain osteopath received a certificate from the Board of Medical Examiners while the board was under the impression that the institution from which he obtained his diploma was one of those recognized by the board. When the mistake was discovered it was proposed to revoke the certificate, but the power to do so was denied by the attorney general. The case will probably be a warning to other boards to scrutinize credentials, especially in this class of cases.
