To the Editor.—In an interesting article in the August issue of the Archives entitled ``Tricophytin and Allergy to Tricophytin'' by Sulzberger, Lewis and Wise, the following paragraph is found:
"Van Dyck, Kingsbury, Throne and Myers, working at about the same time, obtained remarkably effective therapeutic results through the employment of approximately the same method as that outlined by Sulzberger and Wise. These investigators made no mention of the regular reduction in cutaneous sensitivity to tests with tricophytin.''
For the basis of this statement Sulzberger and his co-workers referred to an article by Van Dyck, Kingsbury, Throne and Myers entitled "The Use of Tricophytin as a Diagnostic and Therapeutic Agent in Mycotic Infections of the Skin," which appeared in the New York State Journal of Medicine (31:611 [May 15] 1931). No mention, however, was made by Sulzberger and his co-workers of a second article on the same subject,
