is a classic and should be read by any surgeon who treats hand infections.
Over the years, I have compiled a series of classic articles on nearly 60 topics relevant to hand surgery. These articles form the basis of a weekly journal club in which our residents and fellows discuss the articles and faculty provides insight as to relevance and significance. Needless to say, Dr. Neviaser’s article is included in the group covering hand infections.
On behalf of my coauthors, Drs. Osterman and Draeger, we apologize for this oversight.

The review article on acute infections1 in the August 2014 issue of the Journal of Hand Surgery was of considerable interest to me because I have authored numerous articles as well as the chapter on infections in Green’s Operative Hand Surgery for the first 4 or so editions. I was pleased to see the acknowledgment that surgical irrigation of the tendon sheath through windows was a successful technique to treat pyogenic flexor tenosynovitis.
