To the Editor:
—In my article, "Chorioretinitis Produced by Atomic Bomb Explosion," published in the Archives (54:539 [Oct.] 1955) I quoted from the Army hospital records of Fort Hood, Texas.Unknown to me, this case was submitted for publication in Military Medicine (117:338 [Oct.] 1955) by Dr. Arthur Lloyd Chambers, 2d, who was Chief of the Eye Section at the hospital in Fort Hood, Texas, and whose description of the lesion I have quoted in my article. The title of his article was "The Use of Cortisone in the Treatment of Chorioretinal Damage Resulting from Observation of Atomic Detonation."Had this article been published in time to appear in the Cumulative Index, I would have given him credit for his observations and treatment of this case.
