An interested reader drew to our attention the fact that quite a subtantial amount of the text, as well as Figs. 1–3, that appeared in the above article had already appeared in the following paper [Mochizuki Y, Harada H, Ikuta M, Shimamoto H, Tomioka H, Tanaka K, Hirai H and Omura K: Clinical characteristics of multiple primary carcinomas of the oral cavity. Oral Oncol 52: 182–189, 2015].
Following an investigation, the Journal was able to confirm that this accusation of plagiarism is well-founded.
