Abstract

The Editors-in-Chief would like to alert readers that the accuracy of details described in Case III (56 year old male) of this article [1] have been questioned by a reader. Unfortunately, for legal reasons, the authors’ institution has not been able to confirm or refute whether the events reported about the case are accurate. Consequently, readers are advised to interpret the details of Case III with caution.
