To the Editor:
Like most editors, I am sure you have seen the word, pruritus, misspelt many times. Students are perhaps the worst offenders. To impress them with the proper spelling of the word, I have composed the following "poem":Like a little fleaThat's hard to seeBut never fails to bite usIs a word that's felt butOft misspeltAnd that word is pruritus.
