To the Editor.—
I am pleased that Dr. Fisher is concerned about the problem of terminology of appendageal tumors. No member of the American Society of Dermatohistopathology has observed a similar tumor, and Dr. Landry and I recognize it to be a unique pattern of apocrine, hamartomatous proliferation in organoid epithelial nevus. The differential diagnosis includes nevus syringocystadenoma papilliferus and is amply discussed in the article.
