The aim of letters to the editor is to spread information or opinions about medical topics and critically assess, and thereby improve, research of your colleagues or in general. Letters to the editor are usually not peer reviewed, however, all letters will be assessed by our editorial board before publication. Submit your letter to the editor as a word document at www.amsj.nl. Your letter will be published in print and online at www.amsj.nl.

To prevent for plagiarism, it is very important that this narrative report cannot be an exact copy of the abstract in the original article.
