We consider a two-dimensional electron system with Coulomb interaction between particles at a finite temperature T. We show that the dynamic Kohn anomaly in the response function at 2 kF leads to a nonanalytic, linear-in- T correction to the spin susceptibility, δχ (T) =aT, the same as in systems with short-range interaction. We show that the singularity of the Coulomb interaction at q=0 does not invalidate the expansion of the prefactor a in powers of rs, but makes the expansion nonanalytic.
