To the Editor:—
In the December number of the Archives of Dermatology and Syphilology an article by Dr. Cannon and myself was published under the title of "A Hitherto Undescribed Condition of the Tongue."Credit for the original description of this condition should be given to Dr. L. Brocq and Dr. L. M. Pautrier, who published in the Annales de Dermatologie et de Syphiligraphie, volume 5, page 1, 1914 to 1915, an article entitled "Glossite Losangique Mediane de la Face Dorsale de la Langue" in which the authors describe both clinically and histologically the same type of lesion. In the same volume, on page 615, Dr. W. Dubreuilh has reported two analogous cases.We are very glad to give these authors credit for their original observations and regret that their work was overlooked.
