Abstract

In reply to your letter of June 20, the A.M.A. policy for medical terminology is to follow Dorland's Medical Dictionary, published by W. B. Saunders Company. In the latest edition, printed October, 1959, "neurosensory" is defined as pertaining to a sensory nerve, whereas "neurosensorial" is not listed.

Accordingly, neurosensory is the usage adopted by the A.M.A. and the Archives, and this agrees with the Academy and the Mayo Clinic editorial policy.
