To the Editor.—In your June number (p. 1002) a most interesting case is reported by Dr. Ruben Nomland. May I venture to suggest that a careful perusal of a paper on "Epithelioma Adenoides Cysticum," which appeared in the British Journal of Dermatology and Syphilology (34:381 [Dec.] 1922), might help in the solution of Dr. Nomland's problem?
I cannot accept the view that a diagnosis of epithelioma adenoides cysticum should be excluded on the grounds that this condition is always a familial disorder ; that it never undergoes epitheliomatous degeneration, or that the lesions are necessarily nonpigmented.
