To the editor: In my letter to the editor relative to dialysis and psoriasis (Ann Intern Med 88:842, 1978), I stated that "In our first experience a 74-year-old nonuremic patient was unable to be dialyzed through the standard arteriovenous fistula blood-access technique." This is incorrect, because the 74-year-old patient was able to be dialyzed through the standard arteriovenous fistula.
It is probably a significant observation in that most nonuremic patients are unable to maintain patent arteriovenous fistulas (1). In fact, the observation may have some bearing on the psoriatic process as it relates to the coagulation mechanism.
We have now
