We appreciate the interest shown by Dr Feuerman in our article, "Tinea Faciei." We are not surprised that Dr Feuerman and colleagues have reported an additional 16 cases, as it is probably a much more common entity than recent reports indicate.We purposely limited our review, for the most part, to the reputable journals listed in the standard medical references. We have been unable to find Dr Feuerman's publication (Castellania) in the Index Medicus or any other standard medical journal reference. We tried to include as many reliable sources as possible in compiling the data for our article. This included many of the articles Dr Feuerman alleges we omitted. However, if any reliable references were omitted, it was purely accidental, and we apologize to the respective authors of such reports.
