Abstract

To the Editor: —Dr. Gaylord Anderson is quite correct in his criticism of the too-sweeping editorial comment in the Sept 1 issue of The Journal (181:784) concerning my article titled, "Poliomyelitic Paralysis and Tonsillectomy Reconsidered," which appeared in the May, 1962, issue of American Journal of Diseases of Children (103:658). In my interpretation of the findings, I was more reserved than was the editorial. Nevertheless, the editorial may have been useful in drawing attention to one of the dissident findings of a thorough study of poliomyelitis in Seattle. These findings, which are presented in three papers,1-3 indicate that new insight can yet be gained into this complex and elusive disease by exhaustive analysis of its community epidemiology. In the first paper,1 after the community historical and immunological setting is documented there is presented an analysis of the distribution of paralytic poliomyelitis according to time, place, age,
