Errors sometimes creep into medical literature, and are subsequently quoted as facts in textbooks and other publications, thus encumbering the literature with misstatements which it is difficult to correct. For this reason, I venture to make the following correction as soon as possible. No criticism is intended of the authors quoted since the original error was caused by lack of experience with the parasites involved.

In the paper entitled, “Spontaneous Histoplasmosis Occurring in a Dog” by William P. Callahan, Jr., published in the A J T M for November 1944, (1) the author quoted Summerhill as having identified in the mesenteric lymph nodes and lungs of a cat. This statement by Summerhill was made in the discussion of my presentation of Histoplasmosis before the New York Pathological Society (2). At my request Summerhill sent me sections from this cat.
