In the abstract of the article by Dr. W. Guernsey Frey entitled "Monocular Exophthalmos Due to Hyperthyroidism in a Patient with the Duane Syndrome" in the report of the November 15 meeting of the New York Academy of Medicine, Section of Ophthalmology, which appeared in the January issue (Arch. Ophth.31:116, 1944), the penultimate paragraph should read :

"It appears that when hyperthyroidism developed, the left eye did not become exophthalmic to the same degree as the right, because of restraint exercised by a fibrotic external rectus muscle. That there was a strong factor favoring proptosis of this eye seems manifest by the swelling of the soft tissues of the globe observed in the eyelids."
