In the article by Captain Julius R. Pearson and Lt. Colonel Albert W. Wallace, "The Syndrome of Paroxysmal Tachycardia with Short P-R Interval and Prolonged QRS Complex, with Report of Two Cases," in the ANNALS OF INTERNAL MEDICINE, 1944, Volume 21 (November), page 838, it is stated "he was given 0.2 gm. acetyl-beta-methyl-choline chloride subcutaneously." This figure (which was a typographical error in the manuscript) should read 0.02 gm. The larger quantity would be a dangerous overdose. We are indebted to the Medical Department of Merck and Co., Inc., for calling attention to this oversight.
