To the Editor:—
In Vol. 83—No. 3, March 1961, page 386 Mac Brannen et al. mention, "common skin finding not previously described" (Petechial Angiomata).The description is very close to that found in Chapter 7: pages 227-240 of "Vascular Spiders And Related Lesions Of The Skin," William Bennett Bean, M.D. (Charles C Thomas, Publisher, 1958)—"Vascular lesions which increase with age."At least, the "problems" appear to be almost identical. Anyway, Dr. William Bean has written an excellent descriptive summary, as have Mac Brannen et al.
