Analysis of the article by Abdel-Naser et al1 published in the October 2005 issue of the Archives and twice by Youssef et al2,3 shows that information regarding case 1, a 24-year-old man, and case 2, a 9-year-old boy, was previously published both in print2 and online3 at the time that the Archives published the manuscript. The Archives received the manuscript on June 21, 2004, gave provisional acceptance on Dec 26, 2004, and final acceptance on May 5, 2005. The authors had ample opportunity to amend the manuscript to cite the prior publication of the case in September 2004 in print2 prior to our publishing it in October 2005, and to cite online3 in June 2005 the acceptance of the manuscript by the Archives.
