3. New Heights: An unabridged history of the ABCDs
Michael Wile, M.D.
The editorial in the
Archives of Dermatology
by Friedman, Rigel, Kopf, and Polsky titled, "ABCDE—an Evolving Concept in the Early Detection of Melanoma," [
] sets forth the history of the "ABCDs" (with the addition of "E") from the vantage of those co-workers. Mine is a different reading of that history and I share it now in the spirit of academic exchange for the purpose of accuracy.* What follow are facts.
