In the article titled "Delayed Development of Pneumocystis Pneumonia Following Administration of Short-Term High-Dose Trimethoprim-Sulfamethoxazole," published in the May Journal (132:525-526, 1978), in column two, two lines from the bottom and in column three, the first six lines (p 525), the number of patients being treated was mistakenly referred to as reference numbers. The two sentences involved should read as indicated below:

Infectious complications in patients not receiving TMP-SMZ were non-PCP pneumonitis in two and meningitis and/or sepsis in three. Infectious complications seen in patients who received TMP-SMZ were non-PCP pneumonitis in three, oral moniliasis in two, otitis media in two, and suspected but not proved sepsis in one.
