Mucinous cysts are benign, are cystic lesions that can be encountered in vulvar region and filled with mucin. The majority of these cysts are small and asymptomatic. However, occasionally they may reach unusually large sizes, and may become pedunculated. Here, we report a case of vulvar mucinous cyst which was unusually large and pedunculated treated via complete excision.
Mucinous cyst, Vulva, Large excision.
The article entitled “An Unusually Large Mucinous Cyst of Vulva” has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Gynecology and Reproductive Endocrinology considering the statements provided in the article as personal opinion of the author which was found not having any conflict or biasness towards anything. As the article was a perspective one, information provided by the author was considered as an opinion to be expressed through publication.
Soon after the publication of the paper, we witnessed some serious concerns and many of them argued that the paper is a personal perspective and had not discussed any relevant ethical issue considered under the journal scope. Moreover, the paper is neither innovative nor thought provoking.
Publisher took decision to make the article online solely based on the reviewers suggestion which considered the article not but a personal opinion of the author. However, it is found that the article has some unavoidable mistakes and issues, therefore, being retracted from the journal.
Review Comments on this manuscript
The author presents his personal perspective on an old problem that is the independence of moral expression of academics in their professional environment. In my opinion, it is an interesting point of view that is worthy to be published. The manuscript is brief and clearly written with a perfect use of the language. A historical review about the problem and a comparative presentation of the author’s perspective could be added, but the author declares that he is presenting just his personal perspective.
