To the Editor.—  I appreciate the fact that Dr. Pinkus took the time and trouble to write such a clear and persuasive letter about the possible histomechanisms that may be involved in formation of such cysts. I have no objection of any sort to calling such lesions "epidermoid cysts," but I suspect that if the title of the paper had been "Epidermoid Cyst of the Sole," I would have had a letter or letters suggesting that it should have been "Epidermal Inclusion Cyst of the Sole."
