In the Original Investigation by Ross et al titled "Risk of Hepatitis C Virus Transmission From an Infected Gynecologist to Patients: Results of a 7-Year Retrospective Investigation" published in the April 8 issue of the ARCHIVES (2002;162:805-810), an error occurred in Figure 2 on page 809. The last line in the figure was inadvertently dropped. The corrected figure appears here (Figure 2). The journal regrets the error.
Alignment of hepatitis C virus (HCV) subtype 1b hypervariable region 1 (HVR 1) sequences and flanking regions from the gynecologist, the index patient infected by him, patients 1 and 2 identified during the retrospective investigation, and selected controls (C 1, C 2, M58335, and X61596). The HVR 1 is indicated by underscore.
