To the editor: In the April issue of the ANNALS Dr. Howard C. Bruenn published an article concerning the illness and death of President Franklin D. Roosevelt (Ann Intern Med 72:579-591, 1970). The author stated, "to my knowledge, no factual clinical information regarding his health and illnesses and the events leading to his death has ever been published."
Apparently, Dr. Bruenn had not taken notice of the article "How Long Was Roosevelt Ill Before His Death?" by W. G. Eliasberg, M.D., Ph.D., F.A.P.A., and this writer, published in November 1953 by Diseases of the Nervous System, vol. XIV, No. 11.
