Abstract

Roger A.Brumback MD he saga began with the publication in the Journal of Child Neurology in June 2004 of an article by Ip T et al concerning mercury in children with autistic spectrum disorder.1 Meanwhile, another article appeared in Pediatrics International in December 2004 using the same data set but describing that data set in a different way.2 In 2007, Drs. M. Catherine DeSoto and Robert T. Hitlan identified (in the original Journal of Child Neurology article1) significant statistical errors which were acknowl- edged by the authors of the Ip et al article, who then pro- vided the original data set for reanalysis.3–6 After the publication of corrections in the November 2007 issue of the Journal of Child Neurology, readers pointed out the Pediatrics International article, as well as another article in the second issue of the year 2004 of the Hong Kong Journal of Paediatrics (New Series) [official publication of the Hong Kong College of Paediatricians and the Hong Kong Paediatric Society] that was a position paper of the Hong Kong College of Paediatricians on lead and mercury expo- sure and chelation therapy in children.7 “Unintentional careless mistakes” was the explanation given by the authors for inconsistencies
