To the Editor:—There appeared in the July 1950 issue of the Archives of Otolaryngology my article "The Tympanic Plexus—An Anatomic Study." In this article were two schematic drawings illustrating the distribution of the tympanic plexus. These drawings were copied, with slight modification, from Dr. O. Marcondes Calasans' exhaustive paper, which on my request he sent me in March 1949. The following reference to his work should have appeared on the legend of figure 1:
"The two schematic drawings are those of O. Calasans, slightly modified. My observations corroborate his. (From Rev. brasil. oto-rino-Laring.10:611 [Nov.-Dec.] 1942.)"
Somehow, through error or oversight, this reference to Dr. Calasans' work did not appear in the published article. For this regrettable circumstance I apologize to Dr. Calasans.
March 6, 1951.
