Abstract  Kalikmanov [Phys. Rev. E 59, 4085 (1999)] proposed a perturbation theory method to calculate the dielectric constant of dipolar hard sphere fluids using an infinitely long cylindrical container to avoid the depolarization. We demonstrate that while the method is very helpful, his theory appears to be incomplete because of the incorrect calculation of the corresponding threebody integrals. It is shown that with the correct consideration of these terms the theory is consistent with the results of earlier work in lowdensity limit, and at high densities the method yields the equation of Tani et al. [Mol. Phys. 48, 863 (1983)] for the dipolar hard sphere fluid dielectric constant.
