# [texhax] citation in theorem

In using the "extra title" option in calling a theorem --
\begin{theorem}[extra_title]  ... \end{theorem}
I would like to add a citation:
\begin{theorem}[extra_title \cite{einstein05}]  ... \end{theorem}
LaTex doesn't like this;  the complaint is
Argument of \@citex has an extra }.
Is there a way to make this work?  To be sure, I can always move the citation out of the "extra title" option:
\begin{theorem}[extra_title] \cite{einstein05}  ... \end{theorem}
but that's not quite what I want, and the result looks funny.

Thanks,
Jay
