Errors in Text and Figure. In the Original Investigation by Liu et al titled “Prognostic Factors and Antibiotics in Vibrio vulnificus Septicemia,” published in the October 23 issue of the ARCHIVES (2006;166:2117-2123), errors appeared in both the text and Figure 2. In the Methods section of the abstract, the second and third sentences should have read as follows: “Patients were divided into 2 groups: those without HBNCLs (group 1) and those with HBNCLs (group 2). Patients were further divided into subgroups with fatalities (fatal subgroup) and those without fatalities (nonfatal subgroup).” In Figure 2B, the P value above the first 2 bars, for comparison of treatment outcomes using a third-generation cephalosporin plus tetracycline or its analogue vs other antibiotics, should have read “P < .001.” The ARCHIVES regrets the errors.
