Abstract

In the article by Dr. Henry Milch on Triphalangeal Thumb, published in The Journal for July 1951 (Vol. 33-A, pages 692-697), four cases of this deformity were reported.

The patient whose history is presented as Case 1 was seen by Dr. Milch in the Out-Patient Clinic at the Hospital for Joint Diseases on January 2, 1943.

By a coincidence this man was one of the group found by Dr. Paul W. Lapidus in examination of draftees at the New York Recruiting and Induction Station. This case was included in the six cases reported by Dr. Lapidus and Lieut. Col. Frank P. Guidotti in their article published in Archives of Surgery (Vol. 49, pages 228-234, October 1944).

The article by Dr. Milch published in the July Journal, therefore, increases the reported cases by three, rather than by four.
