—I am obliged to Dr Price for bringing to our attention other reports that are similar to mine. One explanation for the oversight is that Index Medicus apparently failed to list their titles under vertebrobasilar disease. No one could be more critical than I of those who would use lame excuses when they appear to have inadvertently and innocently "borrowed from" prior works they leave uncited. This was not the case here. I have long been interested in the occurrence of unilateral motor and sensory signs as early warnings in basilar artery occlusion.1,2 Despite my spreading the word for 30 years, inperfections persist; hence, the current attempt to crystallize a kind of clinical syndrome.
