Abstract. The main purpose of this paper is to correct the result of A. Suvarnamani that was published in this journal. In particular, A. Suvarnamani showed in  that is the ``unique solution'' to the Diophantine equation
In the present paper, we give more solutions to ().
That is, we show that if the well-known Twin Prime Conjecture is true, then the Diophantine equation given by (), where and are twin primes, has infinitely many solutions in positive integers. Furthermore, we show that if the sum of and is a square, then () has the unique solution
in non-negative integers.
