We note with interest the appraisal of the cytodiagnostic technique on 63 skin specimens as reported by Woodburne and his co-workers in Cytologic Studies in Skin Cancer appearing in the Archives of Dermatology, December, 1960. In a field where there is, as yet, a scanty literature, it perhaps serves a useful purpose to correct an omission of some magnitude.For some years, we also have been interested in this diagnostic approach to skin tumors, and have previously published our findings on 500 consecutive specimens. In December, 1955, at the American Academy of Dermatology meeting in Chicago, we presented an exhibit in which our results in this considerable material were profusely illustrated with numerous photomicrographs and explanatory tables. A complete report of our entire study, Cytodiagnosis of Cutaneous Malignancy, appeared in the New York State Journal of Medicine, Nov. 15, 1956. Later, a summary description of the exhibit
