Error in Dosage

Arch Dermatol. 2000;136(3):378. doi:10.1001/archderm.136.3.378

In the correspondence titled "Ivermectin: A Few Caveats Are Warranted Before Initiating Therapy for Scabies," published in the December issue of the ARCHIVES (1999;135:1549-1550), all dosage units are in milligrams per kilogram and should have been micrograms per kilogram. Therefore, the following corrections should be made: "200 mg/kg" should be "200 µg/kg," "250 mg/kg" should be "250 µg/kg," and "400 mg/kg" should be "400 µg/kg."
