To the editor: We appeal to physicians and investigators for rheumatic subcutaneous nodules recently formed in the course of rheumatic carditis, for use in studies of the pathogenesis of rheumatic fever.
Nodules situated on the extremities, readily accessible to biopsy and just in the process of forming before steroid therapy, are especially sought, although any nodules are welcome. Self-addressed containers with fluids and details on biopsy technic may be obtained from Bernice G. Wedum, M.D., c/o Mr. Gun-Hyuk Kim, Bldg. 37, Room 1C27, National Health Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD 20014.
