The article by Lee titled "Combination 532-nm and 1064-nm Lasers for Noninvasive Skin Rejuvenation and Toning," published in the October ARCHIVES (2003;139:1265-1276), had figures and portions of the text previously published in Seminars in Cutaneous Medicine and Surgery (2002;21:288-300). The difference in publication schedules of the 2 journals allowed the material to be published in Seminars first. The article in the ARCHIVES did not refer to the previously published work because the author was unable to determine which article would be published first when the manuscript was submitted.
