To the Editor.—
My copy of the Archives will not arrive until next month, but thanks to W. L. Macaulay, I received an earlier copy of the article "Mucha-Habermann Disease Mistaken for Reticulum Cell Sarcoma," by Muller and Schulze (Arch Derm103:423-427, 1971).Muller and Schulze emphasized the negative imprints in their studies. I wish to make the following comments in this regard.
The two cases reported by Dr. Haserick and myself1 were mentioned in their article. Touch imprints were done in the first of these two cases. As we reported, this was "moderately cellular... and considered to be consistent with reticulum cell sarcoma." These, together with the sections from the skin biopsy were shown to various pathologists, who considered reticulum cell sarcoma in both types of preparations.
The study I did together with Sally Fand2 is even more pertinent. We measured DNA in individual nuclei of
