To the Editor:—
I was interested in the article that appeared in The Journal July 15, 1950 (page 957) "Lipomelanic Reticulosis" by Drs. Agress and Fishman of California. It should be emphasized that most dermatologists have observed the generalized lymph adenopathy associated with chronic dermatoses. I also feel that credit should be given to Dr. Elliott Hurwitt, whose excellent paper appeared in The Journal of Investigative Dermatology in August 1942. He called the condition "dermatopathic lymphadenitis," or focal granulomatous lymphadenitis associated with chronic generalized skin disorders. He reported a series of 12 cases carefully studied with excellent microscopic descriptions of the lymph nodes involved.
