In the article by Shin et al1, abstract, table and references were published incorrectly. The correct version of them are shown below:


Cutaneous angiomyolipoma, which is also known as cutaneous angiolipoleiomyoma, is a rare benign mesenchymal tumor. Only 18 cases in the English-language literature have been reported. We describe a case of angiomyolipoma presenting on the right ear helix of a 26-year-old female. Histopathological examination revealed a typical form of angiomylipoma, showing a proliferation of mature adipocytes. As with all previously reported cases, our patient did not present with the stigmata of tuberous sclerosis. As far as we know, this is the 22nd reported case of cutaneous angiomyolipoma and the 4th case in Korea.
