To the Editor.—
I read with interest the recent reports of unilateral nevoid telangiectasia by Jucas et al in the March 1979 Archives (115:359-360) and by Person et al in the September 1979 Archives (115:1034). In the last three months I have seen a 10-year-old girl and a 26-year-old man with typical clinical signs of unilateral nevoid telangiectasia. The girl had noted skin changes for only two months and she was otherwise healthy. The man had had his eruption for as long as he could remember; he was also healthy and was nonalcoholic. I fully agree with the final remarks of Person et al about the frequency of the disorder. It could be a coincidence, but I have seen the patients described here from a population of about 240,000, which indicates that the disorder is more common than previously recognized.
