In the Editorial entitled “Adverse Fetal Outcomes: Expanding the Role of Infection” published in the March 19, 2014, issue of JAMA (2014;311:1115-1116. doi:10.1001/jama.2014.1889), a temperature was reported incorrectly by 1.8°C. In the sixth full paragraph, the second to last sentence should have been “Even in settings with a policy that all obstetric patients with a temperature of 37.9°C or higher or with suspected clinical septicemia have a blood culture performed, peripartum bacteremia is not commonly documented.” This article was corrected online.
