We read with great interest the case report by Jesús Rocha-Maguey et al. entitled “A new case of cervical intramedullary sinus histiocytosis causing paraplegia and review of the literature.”[
First, the authors have cited an article reported by Sandoval et al.,[
Second, Jo-Ann W. Andriko et al.[
Therefore, the patient in the article by Jesús Rocha-Maguey's et al.[
Isolated intramedullary RDD is a rare clinical entity, and during reporting of such rare cases, attention should be given to correct and accurate reporting of data with complete information. Such debatable reporting of rare cases makes the credibility of a reputed journal like this esteemed journal to be questioned. Furthermore, we think it is imperative to keep the data correct and authoritative and maintain the credibility of such esteemed journal like Surg Neurol Int.
