To the Editor:—
The term "San Franciscitis" mentioned in Dr. MacDonald's letter will be welcomed by our friends abroad who are often irritated by our tendency to regard travelers' diarrhea as an ailment acquired solely in their countries. After World War II, many visitors from Britain developed diarrhea in New York City. Theories as to etiology were numerous—approximately one per patient. We have on hand the prospectus for a project in which visitors to the United States will be asked to report on the incidence of diarrhea during their stay in this country.
