To the Editor  In their clinical study "Yeast Vulvovaginitis Due to Oral Contraceptives" (Arch Derm93:402 [April] 1966), Porter and Lyle credit Yaffee and Grots with the first report on oral contraceptive-induced moniliasis (Letters to Editor, New Eng J Med272:647, 1965).It should be pointed out, however, that Hall reported his observations on vaginal moniliasis due to oral contraceptives several years ago (Letter to the Editor, Med J Aust2:525 [Sept 29] 1962).It may be of interest that there is also a recent report on this subject by Walsh and her associates entitled "Candidial Vaginitis Associated With the Use of Oral Progestational Agents" (Amer J Obstet Gynec93:904 Nov 15, 1965).
