To the Editor:

I have to thank you for your review of , Revised second edition, published by the World Health Organization, Geneva, 1986.

I agree with most points mentioned by you in the first six paragraphs of the review, as it appears in the of November 1986, page 1320. This gives me the opportunity of stating most emphatically, that the “revised edition” of the book (originally published in 1981 and edited by me with the coauthorship of R. H. Black, C. J. Canfield, D. F. Clyde, W. Peters, and W. H. Wernsdorfer), was printed and distributed in 1986 without any prior consultation with me and without my knowledge or approval. Thus I refute any responsibility for pages 3–7 that form the only addition to the original 1981 text.
