To the Editor:—In a paper entitled "Treatment of Retinal Gliomas by the Fractionated or Divided Dose Principle of Roentgen Radiation," publihsed in the November 1936 issue (Arch. Ophth. 16: 734), my collaborator and I stated:
Verhoeff's patient . . . received a "suberythema dose" of lightly filtered roentgen radiation to the eye once a week for three weeks.
This statement is not in accord with Verhoeff's report, which reads:
Dr. Liebman gave the first treatment on the same day, a sub-erythema dose through a 5 mm. aluminum filter. After this, similar treatment was given once a week for three weeks, and on June 6th, June 27th, August 1st, November 1st, 1918, and on January 17th, 1919.
We admit the error in quotation and gladly take this opportunity
