To the Editor:—
I enjoyed reading Dr. Perry's article on Subacute Nodular Migratory Panniculitis in the current Archives of Dermatology. However, I would like to bring to your attention the improper use of Dr. Vilanova's co-worker's name, Dr. J. Pinol Aguadé. By Spanish and Spanish-American tradition, when two family names are used, the first one refers to paternal family name, and the second one to the maternal family name. In this case Dr. Vilanova's coauthor should be referred to as either Dr. Pinol or Pinol Aguadé, but never to Aguadé which only refers to his mother's family name. I know that this terminology is a little confusing to most people in the United States and that this is a common error which is found every day in newspapers and magazines.You will be interested to know, too, that Dr. Vilanova will be the President of the Sixth Ibero-Latin American Congress
