To the Editor.—
Dr. Constantine and I appreciate Dr. Tappeiner calling attention to an apparently ambiguous statement in our article on "Kyrle's Disease" in the Archives (97:624 [June] 1968).Possibly the statement would have been less confusing if it had read ". . . four of our patients and three of the accepted cases from the literature had evaluations of glucose metabolism." It would seem pointless, however to review unaccepted cases.It appears we did miss the case of Aupaix and Leloup. Like Dr. Harry L. Arnold in defense of his research on Kyrle's disease, remoteness could not be an excuse.It is gratifying that Dr. Tappeiner and his associates have confirmed our observations on the pathogenesis of the lesions in Kyrle's disease. We will enjoy seeing his data.
