To the Editors: The article "Aphthous Ulceration of the Gastrointestinal Tract in Patients with the Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS)" in the 15 March issue (1) carries an incorrect statement. Dr. Bach and colleagues thank me for referring a patient. I did not refer the patient: The patient described as "case 1" was never seen by the authors nor was my permission to publish the case description or the accompanying photograph sought or given.
I saw the patient at Northern Westchester Hospital Center in Mt. Kisco, New York, and almost simultaneously became aware of Dr. Bach's initial paper on the subject
