Footnotes

  1. ^ No absolute size, or range of sizes, is specified in this definition, as there seems to be no general consensus within the literature. Andrews' Diseases of the Skin: Clinical Dermatology (see references), specifies no size; some dermatologists consider this text an authority on the subject. See also Lack of standardization.
