In Reply.—Through a typographical error, the study by Mimouni et al was not properly referenced in our introductory sentence. However, in the "Comment" section, we noted that his study subjects were newborn Israeli infants. We should have included an annotation that 11 of 43 newborns with supernumerary nipples in Mimouni and colleagues' study also had a renal ultrasound examination.

We appreciate Dr Mimouni's careful reading of our article and his concurrence that supernumerary nipples alone in black children1 do not warrant an investigation for a hidden renal anomaly.
