In the article by Sparkes et al, "Familial Hypogonadotropic Hypogonadism With Anosmia," which appeared in the June 1968 issue of the Archives (121:534-538), the authors noted three errors which originally appeared in their manuscript.

The sentence which begins on line 2 in the first column on page 535 should have read, "Total urinary gonadotropin excretion was <0.15 milligrams equivalent (mg Eq) urine post-menopausal-batch 1 (UMP-1)/ 24 hr (range for normal adult man is 0.7 to 3.8 mg Eq/24 hr)."

The first sentence in the third column on this same page should have read, "Urinary gonadotropin excretion was negative at 6 mouse units, and 17 ketosteroid excretion was 7 mg/24 hr."

In the second column on page 536, lines 38 to 40 should have read, "gonadotropin titer was <0.15 mg Eq UPM-1/24 hr (normal range for adult women is 0.7 to 4.7 mg Eq/ 24 hr)."
