To the Editor: In the article entitled "Physiologic Studies in Atopic Dermatitis (Disseminated Neurodermatitis): II. The Effect of Denervation on the `Delayed Blanch Phenomenon,''' by Dr. Heller, Dr. Dobson and myself, published in the A. M. A. Archives of Dermatology 75:228-229 (Feb.) 1957, we unintentionally failed to give printed recognition of priority to Dr. Stephen Rothman and Dr. Robert E. Bloom for a study similar to our Experiment 4 (brachial plexus nerve block) and to Dr. Brian Russell and Dr. S. L. Last for their work wherein they observed that a cervical sympathetic block with procaine did not eliminate the white dermographism in Besnier's prurgio.
Dr. Rothman presented this material in his discussion of a paper by R. G. Weber, G. M. Roth, and R. R. Kierland, entitled "Further Contributions to the Vascular Physiology of Atopic Dermatitis" and published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology 24:30 (Jan.) 1955.
