Abstract

To the Editor:—In the July issue of A.M.A. Archives of Dermatology there is a short note by Dr. Weiner on a case for diagnosis by Chaucer. Chaucer's passage has been commented on before. Dr. R. N. R. Grant, in an interesting article on the "History of Acne," which appeared in Proceedings of the Royal Society of Medicine 44:647-652 (Aug.) 1951 (Section of the History of Medicine, pages 19-24), quotes the same passage and suggests a diagnosis of rosacea.
