To the Editor:—
In the Dec. 19, 1942 issue of The Journal, page 1283, in an article by James W. Smith on ochronosis, the statement is made that "Harvey Cushing's finding that the first British case of ochronosis had been diagnosed Addison's disease does not appear in the medical literature and is worth recording." On page 12, volume 2 and on page 698 in the single tome edition the reference to this case is made. The case was reported by Dr. Frank M. Pope (Lancet1:24 [Jan. 6] 1906). In the front of the Jan. 6, 1906 issue of the Lancet are about a half dozen colored illustrations of the case. In the article itself the 11 previously reported cases are mentioned and exact references are listed. I enjoyed Dr. Smith's article but believe this is worth checking.
