In the CLINICAL SURVEY article, "Insect and Scorpion Sting," published Aug 21 (221:894-898, 1972), reference was made to intravenous use of hydrocortisone acetate. Because hydrocortisone acetate is insoluble, the intravenous cortisone formulation given in column 1, page 897, lines 14 and 33 (step 4 in both lists), should be hydrocortisone sodium succinate.
