To the Editor:—
With reference to my paper, "A New Cutaneous Manifestation in the Syndrome of Vitamin A Deficiency," which was published in the November issue of the Archives of Dermatology and Syhilology (28:700, 1933), Dr. Lapa of Lisbon, Portugal, recently informed me that a dermatosis similar to the one I described had previously been reported from China. The reference to this paper is: Frazier, C. N., and Hu, C. K.: Cutaneous Lesions Associated with a Deficiency in Vitamin A in Man (Arch. Int. Med.48:507 [Sept.] 1931).
