Errors in Text in: A Study of Histopathological Features of Latanoprost-Treated Irides With or Without Darkening Compared With Non–Latanoprost Treated Irides

Arch Ophthalmol. 2008;126(10):1403. doi:10.1001/archopht.126.10.1403

Errors in Text. In the Clinical Sciences article titled “A Study of Histopathological Features of Latanoprost-Treated Irides With or Without Darkening Compared With Non–Latanoprost Treated Irides” by Albert et al, published in the May issue of the Archives (2008;126[5]:626-631), there were errors in quoted data of the study by Arranz-Marquez et al. The number of iridectomy specimens from patients with latanoprost-induced darkening should have been listed as 14 instead of 22. No mitotic figures or prominent nucleoli were present in any specimens. Therefore, on page 626, the first 2 sentences of the Introduction's second paragraph should have read as follows: “A recent study by Arranz-Marquez et al4 compared iridectomy specimens from patients with latanoprost-induced darkening (n = 14) and those from untreated controls (n = 8). The authors found that latanoprost-induced darkened irides had an increased number of melanocytes with intranuclear inclusions and nuclear invaginations suggestive of atypia.”
