The Wigner distribution function of a Lorentz–Gauss vortex beam with one topological charge is considered. The topics have been the object of a recent publication. However, we present an alternative compact expressionthat could complement the analysis developed in the aforementioned publication. The deduced expression can be usefully exploited to fully account for the Wigner dynamics of the Lorentz–Gauss vortex beam as far as the paraxial propagation through first-order optical systems is concerned.
