To the editor: The issue of the responsibility of authors has been addressed in this section previously. I wish to inform you of an occurrence indirectly involving your journal. Marchlinski and colleagues (1) have reported in Annals of Internal Medicine four cases of amiodarone pulmonary toxicity. This article was followed several months later by a report by Gefter and colleagues (2) in the journal Radiology, of the same four cases. The authors of the two articles were different, and quite possibly several of them were unaware that another group was independently writing up the same cases. However, mention is made
