In the article "Palmoplantar Keratosis Acuminata With Facial Sebaceous Hyperplasia," published in the January Archives (109:86-87,1974), an error occurred on page 86. The second sentence of the last paragraph in column 2, should read: "The VDRL test for syphilis, fluorescent treponemal antibody absorption test (FTA-ABS), and serologic studies were normal." As published, the acronym, FTA-ABS, was incorrectly expanded to "fluorescent treponemal antibody and acute brain syndrome."
