To the Editor.
—The illustration of a "characteristic erythema migrans lesion" used in the article by Kaslow1 first appeared in my 1984 article on Lyme disease.2 The "dark papular lesion at the periphery" represents a fibroepithelial polyp, not the site of a possible tick bite. The erythema migrans lesion appeared on the left hip, measured 8 by 9 cm, and had been present for 7 days.
