Error in Table

JAMA. 1998;279(9):656. doi:10.1001/jama.279.9.656

In the Original Contribution entitled "Trends in Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis in the United States, 1993-1996," published in the September 10, 1997, issue of THE JOURNAL (1997;278:833-837), 2 errors appear. On page 833, in the fifth sentence of the "Results" section of the Abstract, the phrases "US-born" and "foreign-born" appear in the wrong order. The sentence should read: "Rates of isoniazid and streptomycin resistance were higher for cases among foreign-born compared with US-born patients, but rates of rifampin resistance and MDR TB were similar." In the fourth sentence of the first paragraph in the third column on page 834, the list of states with isoniazid resistance is incorrect. The sentence should read: "Only Wyoming and Vermont had no reported cases of isoniazid resistance; Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, North Carolina, South Dakota, Oklahoma, and Tennessee had 1% to 3% of cases reported as resistant."
