Your obit­u­ary on Oliver Sacks ( JC, Oct 9) in­cor­rectly states that his mother, Elsie Muriel Lan­dau, was a pathol­o­gist. She was, as cor­rectly stated, one of Bri­tain’s first women sur­geons, but she left sur­gi­cal prac­tice in the 1930s to take up the gy­nae­col­ogy and ob­stet­ric prac­tice for which she be­came fa­mous.
