Endocarditis in a Woman With Pulmonary Histiocytosis—Correction

JAMA. 2001;286(24):3081. doi:10.1001/jama.286.24.3081

Notice of Triplicate Publication. The Research Letter, "Streptococcus Equinus Endocarditis in a Woman With Pulmonary Histiocytosis," by L. A. Sechi, MD, and R. Ciani, MD, published in the February 23, 2000, issue of THE JOURNAL,1 is virtually identical to a case report by the same authors published in the Scandinavian Journal of Infectious Diseases, 19992 and to a letter to the editor by the same authors published in The American Journal of Medicine, 2000.3

The author had sent a signed statement of authorship responsibility to the editors of THE JOURNAL stating that their manuscript had not been published and was not under consideration for publication elsewhere. They also signed a document that transferred all copyright ownership to the publisher. Well before publication, Drs Sechi and Ciani received a letter of acceptance from THE JOURNAL reminding them of our policy on duplicate publication.
