Sir.—Much to our disappointment, we discovered an error in our article "What Physicians Know About the Prognosis of Preterm Newborns" (Journal 1983;137:551-554). We want to draw to the attention of the readers of the AJDC the response noted to question 2 in Table 2 (p 552). The correct response to this questionnaire item, "Most children born weighing less than 1,500 g will not experience some form of developmental handicaps," should have been "A" (agree), and the data from our study were analyzed with this as the correct response.
