Abstract

Richard L. Sutton described what he termed "periadenitis mucosa necrotica recurrens," now known as major aphthosis or Sutton's ulcer in 1911. He described "leukoderma acquisitum centrifugum" (halo nevus, Sutton's nevus) in 1916. Here, we summarize the 2 publications by Sutton, trace his life story, and comment briefly on these 2 diseases.
