Abstract

To the Editor.—  Matsudo et al, in their article on zosteriform lentiginous nevus in the June issue of the Archives (107:902, 1973), state, "the histopathological findings of these axillary freckles have been so far unreported" (page 904).This statement is incorrect. The histologic features, as well as the distribution and character, of the melanocytes were studied and reported by Johnson and Charneco in the Archives (102:442, 1970). This article is cited as reference 13 by Dr. Matsudo.As stated in the original article by Johnson and Charneco, the axillary freckle is a miniature café au lait spot and shows increased melanocytes and melanocytes with giant pigment granules.
