To the Editor:
I wish to take exception to a statement occurring in the report of Liebmann, Crocker, and Geiser on "Corneal Xanthomas in Childhood" (Arch Ophthal76:228 [Aug] 1966). They state "In patients with otherwise typical Schüller-Christian or Letterer-Siwe syndrome, there may occasionally be nodular skin xanthomas, and even eyelid xanthalasmas. It is probable that the patient reported by Staple et al is of this type." (Staple, T.W., et al: Juvenile Xanthogranuloma of the Orbit, Amer J Roentgen91:629, 1964.) The undersigned is one of the authors.This case was presented as a clinical pathology report at the American Academy of Ophthalmology and Otorhinolaryngology in 1964. (Sanders, T.E., and Miller, J.E.: Infantile Xanthogranuloma of the Orbit, Trans Amer Acad Ophthal Otolaryng69: 458-464 [May-June] 1965.) It is included in a recent report by me of three cases of juvenile xanthogranuloma of the orbit. (Sanders, T.E.: Infantile Xanthogranuloma
