Sirs,
I have come across a letter to the Editor recently published in the “Advances of Dermatology and Allergology” titled: Pemphigus foliaceus complicated by sepsis of the aetiology of Yersinia enterocolitica after eating cheesecake (Adv Dermatol Allergol 2020; XXXVII (1): 111–113; DOI: https://doi.org/10.5114/ada.2018.78880). The title of this manuscript is misleading as it points to exclusively Yersinia enterocolitica sepsis, while both Yersinia enterocolitica and Staphylococcus aureus were cultured from the blood. Importantly, the patient had upper limbs swollen, which might have been a sign of the point of entry of the staph infection from the skin surface. The obvious reasoning is that systemic signs of infection in the patient were caused by the synergistic effects of both bacterial species. Thus, I suggest that the authors should title their manuscripts in a manner as precise as possible, especially if the abstracts are not available, to avoid confusing the readers by stressing incomplete/fragmentary information.
