Identifiable Patient Photographs FREE

Arch Facial Plast Surg. 2007;9(3):204. doi:10.1001/archfaci.9.3.204.

Please do not send masked photographs of patients.

Until the late 1980s, placing black bars over the eyes of patients was accepted as a way to mask the identities of patients in photographs when consent to publish their photographs was not or could not be obtained. However, bars across eyes do not always mask identities and should not be used. . . . Therefore, when photographs of faces or identifiable body parts or detailed case descriptions are included in a manuscript, authors should obtain written permission from the identifiable subject (or a legally authorized representative) to publish the photograph or case description, and send a copy of the permission to the journal.1

Authors may obtain the Patient Consent Form from www.archfacial.com The patient should be offered the opportunity to see the manuscript before submission. When the manuscript is submitted electronically, send the patient consent by fax to the editorial office: (206) 386-3553.
