To the Editor.—
"Sebaceous nevus" is good English but not customary nomenclature. "Nevus sebaceus" is good Latin, and it is also customary nomen-clature. "Nevus sebaceous" is both Latin and English! Author, reviewer, editor, manuscript editor, or proofreader should have spotted this error somewhere along the line and corrected it before it got into the February issue of the Archives. It's just as unacceptable as lichen "planous" or lupus "erythematous" would be.
