THE death on April 25 of Dr. Jenö Holzwarth, professor of radiology at the University of Budapest, is announced in the issue of the Lancet for May 20. Prof. Holzwarth studied at one time under Prof. Rontgen and afterwards acted as surgical radiologist in the clinic of Prof. Dollinger. During the earlier years, when insufficient protective appliances were in use, he suffered injuries which later developed into malignant disease. His chief contributions to the subject of radiology were on the therapeutic side, and his main papers are to be found in the Orvosi Letil, Budapest, during the years 1907–12. This publication appears to have ceased since the war.
