Full Text: To the Editor.--We recently published the following review article in the ARCHIVES: Yousef GM, Naghibi B. Malakoplakia outside the urinary tract. Arch Pathol Lab Med. 2007; 131(2):297-300. I realize that the name of Mowafak M. Hamodat, MB, ChB, MSc, FRCPC, was inadvertently omitted from the author list.

I am, therefore, writing to notify you of this oversight on my part, and I ask you to recognize Dr Hamodat as a coauthor.

To clarify, the roles of the authors were as follows: Dr G. M. Yousef, writing and designing the review article; Dr B. Naghibi, sharing in the design of the article; and Dr M. M. Hamodat, contributing information about a case report of malakoplakia of the neck, which was mentioned in the article.

The corrected citation is as follows: Yousef GM, Naghibi B, Hamodat M. M. Malakoplakia outside the urinary tract. Arch Pathol Lab Med. 2007; 131(2):297-300.

Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.
