To the Editor.—
In answer to the letter from Dr. Lawrence Sherwin, my patient is in excellent health and was using no medication at all at the onset of his dermatosis, which in no way resembled a folliculitis. Other entities were considered and excluded. Of course, Dr. Sherwin is entitled to his opinion. However, several similar cases have been reported, including three cases by Dr. Victor Witten, known personally by many of us as a very competent observer. Moreover, the slides were reviewed very carefully by Dr. Paul Hirsch, an extremely knowledgeable dermatopathologist, who concurs with the diagnosis as presented.
