Reiter's disease may be defined as a syndrome of unknown etiology, characterized by urethritis, conjunctivitis, and arthritis, with a tendency to recurrence.1 Two cases of this disease were encountered by the authors during the past year. They are being reported in this paper because they demonstrate certain features not previously described, because the literature on the subject is scant, and because many of our colleagues have shown themselves to be unaware of the existence of this syndrome, which may be readily confused with gonorrhea, rheumatic fever, the common type of infectious arthritis, and various local disorders of the genito-urinary tract,
