In the June 2 issue of The Journal (239:2362-2365, 1978), the BRIEF REPORT "Pseudomonas Folliculitis Acquired From a Health Spa Whirlpool" should have referred to the association of Pseudomonas aeruginosa with the green nail syndrome, not the blue nail syndrome, in the first paragraph. In addition, on page 2364, column 3, the last sentence of the second complete paragraph should have reported that Pseudomonas organisms were found in pools that measured 0.3 ppm chlorine or less, not 0.7 ppm chlorine or less.
