A key condition of article submission is that authors must explicitly declare that their work is original and has not appeared in a publication elsewhere. Re-use of any data must be appropriately cited. This duplication was not detected by Cureus plagiarism check software as much of the material had been rewritten just enough to avoid detection. While the authors have maintained that this was the result of working with a contract editor, they are ultimately responsible for the draft submitted.
As such this article represents a severe abuse of the scientific publishing system. The Cureus Journal of Medical Science takes a very strong view on this matter and we apologize that this was not detected during the submission process. The relevant author institutions and departments have been notified.
