Errors in Table and Text. In the Original Article titled “Metabolic Screening in Children Receiving Antipsychotic Drug Treatment” by Morrato et al, published in the April issue of the ARCHIVES (2010;164[4]:344-351), errors occurred in the Abstract section on page 344. The Patients section should have read: “A total of 5370 children (ages 6-17 years) without diabetes mellitus taking SGA drugs and 15 000 children without diabetes taking albuterol (control individuals) but no SGA drugs.” The first sentence of the Results section should have read, “Glucose screening was performed with 1699 (31.6% [95% CI, 30.4%-32.9%]) SGA-treated children vs 1891 (12.6% [12.1%-13.2%]) controls.” The final sentence of that section should have read, “The case incidence of glucose and lipid disorders was higher in SGA-treated vs albuterol-treated children (8.9 per 1000 children [95% CI, 6.6-11.8]; vs 4.9 per 1000 children [3.9-6.2]; and 9.7 per 1000 children [7.2-12.7]; vs 4.6 per 1000 children [3.6-5.8], respectively).” Also, in Table 3, errors occurred in 2 column headings on page 348. The top-centermost and top-rightmost column headings should have read, “Ages 6 to 12 Years, no.; rate per 1 000 children (95% CI)” and “Ages 13 to 17 Years, no.; rate per 1 000 children (95% CI)”, respectively.
