The question here is whether they really are exactly the same, or whether this service does this report every December (The two citations are a year apart). Without a subscription you can't see enough on their website to figure it out.

That being said, I recently helped a faculty member find PMIDs for his publications, and found five citations that had duplicate (in one case triplicate) PubMed records/PMIDs. This was out of a total of 75 - 80 publications. I reported to PubMed Help desk, they very quickly removed the duplicates and were grateful to have been informed. Several of them were from the same journal. My suspicion is that this may be (at least partly) an issue of journals that have a small staff and/or a person who doesn't quite understand this process sending new records when they update an online before print publication with the final print issue and page information instead of doing whatever they need to do to indicate that it is an update to a previously submitted record.
