To the Editor.—
In their article "Arteriovenous Fistula: Cutaneous Manifestations" (Archives 112:1135-1138, 1976), Drs Rusin and Harrell state that "it is not surprising, therefore, that congenital acroangiomatosis associated with arteriovenous fistula has been reported on only four occasions, all within the past 10 years."This statement seems to be true only for the American literature. I would like to add four more publications dealing with this subject, which appeared within one year (just to show that arteriovenous fistulas are not only a problem for American dermatologists).1-4
