In Reply.—  As described in the article, my patient is a nurse. I believe that this would answer all of Dr. Arnold's questions.Although she had never been treated with chlorpromazine, she had frequent opportunities to come in contact with the drug, since she had worked in a mental hospital. The eruption, which was observed at the time of the first examination, appeared the day after she injected a drug containing chlorpromazine to her patient.It is well known that chlorpromazine is a common cause of drug eruptions in medical and nursing personnel.
