Adenoma of the nipple in a man: case report
Posted by Prof. Meral Guzey on 20 Jul 2012 12:17:29 PM GMT

  • What are the main claims of the paper and how important are they?

    This is a rare case report of 55 year old man with adenomatosis of the nipple. He evolved positively after surgery.

  • Are these claims novel? If not, please specify papers that weaken the claims to the originality of this one.

    This case already publihed in Int J Surg Case Rep. by the same authors:

    1. Boutayeb S, Benomar S, Sbitti Y, Harroudi T, Hassam B, Errihani H. Nipple adenoma in a man: An unusual case report. Int J Surg Case Rep. 2012;3(5):190-2.Epub 2011 Nov 22. PubMed PMID: 22342578; PubMed.

    Publishing same case in two journals is not a good academic practice. Further, the study is missing necessary figures.

  • Are the claims properly placed in the context of the previous literature?


  • Do the results support the claims? If not, what other evidence is required?


  • If a protocol is provided, for example for a randomized controlled trial, are there any important deviations from it? If so, have the authors explained adequately why the deviations occurred?


  • Is the methodology valid? Does the paper offer enough details of its methodology that its experiments or its analyses could be reproduced?


  • Would any other experiments or additional information improve the paper? How much better would the paper be if this extra work was done, and how difficult would such work be to do, or to provide?


  • Is this paper outstanding in its discipline? (For example, would you like to see this work presented in a seminar at your hospital or university? Do you feel these results need to be incorporated in your next general lecture on the subject?) If yes, what makes it outstanding? If not, why not?


  • Other Comments:

    This study needs the attention of the lead faculty, since professional approach is not ethical.

    I am unable to pursue any further comments.
