Drs Davis and McEvoy have pointed out the similarity between the condition we described as eosinophilic dermatosis of myeloproliferative disease1 and eosinophilic eruptions that they reported.2,3 We appreciate their verification of this similarity, which we proposed in our article. We pointed out that this eruption was probably the same as that described elsewhere as "exaggerated arthropod bite reaction," "insect bite-like reaction," or "exaggerated delayed hypersensitivity to mosquito bites."15 We hope the term eosinophilic dermatosis of myeloproliferative disease can be used in the future to avoid further proliferation of these confusing descriptive terms.
