To the editor: Although the unit is obviously of greater importance to plastic surgeons than to internists, I was surprised that your editorial on metrication (Ann Intern Med 76:2, 322-324, 1972) made no mention of the millihelen.
That's the precise amount of facial beauty, I'm told, necessary to launch one ship.
