In Reply.—It was an unfortunate oversight not to indicate in the legend of Table 3 that the algorithm for screening patients with pigmented lesions was adapted from the previously published work of Weinstock et al,1 which was cited in the text. The adaptations are based on my own experience in teaching primary care physicians to screen patients with pigmented lesions and represent hundreds of hours of time interacting with many primary care physicians. The ABCD rule2 was also used in preparing this algorithm and was not cited in the legend but rather in the text.
