To the Editor.—  The case report "Xanthomatosis and Lymphedema" that appeared in the Archives (105:730-733, 1972) leads off with a statement that "xanthomas appearing in association with lymphedema are a rarely reported entity1-4 not previously described in the American literature." A colleague, James McVay, Jr., MD, Boca Raton, Fla, advised me some months ago of such a case in his practice, and at the same time sent me a copy of an article entitled "Localized Xanthomas in Lymphedema Praecox" (JAMA 211:1372-1374, 1970).
