To the Editor:—In a recent issue of the Military Surgeon (96:271 [March] 1945), Major Simon Rubin and Captain Harvey Blank published an article entitled "The Effective Three Hour Treatment of the Scabetic Patient." They used the method which Dr. Henry A. Smith and I recommended (Arch. Dermat. & Syph.48:370-372 [Oct.] 1945).
I introduced this treatment during World War I in the Austrian Army and after the war in the civilian population. About 70,000 patients with scabies were thus treated. It might be of value if this method were to receive more attention in the treatment of soldiers and civilians.
