[OS X TeX] question about the list of figures

A friend of mine is finishing her thesis (on an iBook running Tiger 
and TeXShop/teTeX, so this is at least slightly on topic :-)).

She uses \listoffigures to produce a list of figures, as normal. The 
trouble is that some of the figures don't really have a meaningful 
caption, just a figure number (produced with \caption{}).
In the list of figures, these appear as completely blank lines, with 
just the page number at the end of the line. She would like these to 
still appear, but provide a text such as "Figure n". Of course one 
can *add* one such line with \addcontentsline but I can't figure out 
how to avoid the blank line in the first place. Any suggestions?
