The clinical significance of the height of the T-wave in Leads I and/or III of the electrocardiogram has been approached from different angles by different authors. Eideiken and Wolferth1 studied low T1, low T1 and T2, and low T2 with inverted T3. They point out that a T1 less than 2 mm. in height is usually associated with myocardial disease unless the position of the heart is vertical. In the latter case the non-significant low T1 is generally associated with a low R1. These authors do not consider the electrical axis of the T-wave except as far as the changes
