Inappropriate Title.  —In the March 20, 1996, issue, THE JOURNAL published an abstract (JAMA. 1996;275:822 n) from the Archives of Internal Medicine (1995;155:2479-2480). The abstract described noncardiogenic pulmonary edema in an ice hockey player related to insufficient ventilation of a hockey rink where oxides of nitrogen were emitted by an ice rink resurfacer. The abstract and original article were inappropriately entitled "'Zamboni Disease': Pulmonary Edema in an Ice Hockey Player," wrongfully associating the trade name of a well-respected ice resurfacer with illness arising from toxic fumes in an arena with inadequate ventilation. The Journal regrets the error.
