In the article "Discussion of Acoustic Neurinoma with Case Presentation," by Rockowitz and Lerner, published in the October, 1952, issue, the last paragraph of the Summary (p. 377) should read as follows: "A woman with a family history of deafness may present symptoms and findings characterized by an audiogram indicative of a conduction type of hearing loss, loss of low tones, as shown by fork testing, and, lastly, onset of initial symptoms (tinnitus with progressive deafness) with pregnancy. Such a case does not necessarily fall into the category of classic otosclerosis, but may possibly be a case of acoustic neurinoma, which can give identical symptoms and findings. True, it is not common, but its possible occurrence is certainly worth bearing in mind."
