Extract

To The Editor:In reference to our case report entitled "Calcaneal Osteomyelitis Caused by Exophiala jeanselmei in an Immunocompetent Child. A Case Report" (2007;89:859-62), my coauthors and I would like to bring to the notice of the readers of The Journal that the same case report has been published by one of us in the Indian Journal of Medical Microbiology as an article entitled "Eumycetoma Pedis Due to Exophiala jeanselmei."1The publication in the Indian Journal of Medical Microbiology was meant to highlight the microbiological aspects of the disease as the said fungus is extremely rare. The authors regret any confusion this might have caused to the readers of both articles.
