To the Editor: I have always wanted to write a concise clinical paper of which there can be no question or comment other than favorable. I am enclosing an original paper "Pug Nose of the Newly Born Infant" which is respectfully submitted for publication in the American Journal of Diseases of Children.
A careful search of the medical literature in the Texas Medical Center Library reveals no mention of a pug nose in infancy. Hence, there is no bibliography for this paper.
The text of the paper follows :
Successful nursing by the newly born infant requires an effort on its part with periods of relaxing and resting. During periods of resting he or she maintains hold of the mother's nipple and breathes by the grace of a pug nose.
