Rarely in this history of pediatrics has a single group of workers so rapidly and effectively brought into focus the special problems of an uncommon disease as have the staff of the Jewish Chronic Disease Hospital in Brooklyn with their studies on Tay-Sachs disease. For a decade they have maintained a steady program of intense interest in this disease led by Drs. Stanley Aronson, Bruno Volk, and Abraham Saifer. A valuable series of personal contributions to the knowledge of this syndrome have resulted, but even more they have stimulated a widespread concern for these pediatric patients in the medical world generally.
