To the Editor:—I regret that in writing the article "Rat Mite Dermatitis" (Arch. Dermat. & Syph.50: 90 [Aug.] 1944), I overlooked the article by Dr. E. K. Stratton, "Rat Mite Dermatitis" (California & West. Med.51:391 [Dec.] 1939).
I should like to add that where rat mite infestation is suspected, but the mites are difficult to find, judicious placing of flypaper about the room or rooms for forty-eight hours will frequently entrap them. This device was resorted to by a patient of mine, with success.
