In reply: I welcome Curry and Merfield's interest and comments. The patient described in my case report1 was not, as Curry states, "a retired physician". Nor did he provide his own health assessment, but had his assessment form filled out by another physician. Unfortunately, this form, along with those of 60 other passengers, was not made available to any doctor before embarkation.
