Error in Text in: Hour-Specific Bilirubin Nomogram in Infants With ABO Incompatibility and Direct Coombs-Positive Results

Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med. 2011;165(2):118. doi:10.1001/archpediatrics.2010.291

Error in Text. In the Article titled “Hour-Specific Bilirubin Nomogram in Infants With ABO Incompatibility and Direct Coombs-Positive Results” by Schutzman et al, published in the December 2010 issue of the Archives (2010;164[12]:1158-1164), an error occurred in the text on page 1162. The third and fourth sentences of the second paragraph in the right-hand column should have read, “They determined that, at the postnatal age of 6 hours, a serum bilirubin level greater than 4 mg/dL (to convert to micromoles per liter, multiply by 17.104) was a strong predictor of significant hyperbilirubinemia, ie, that the infant would require phototherapy. They found that a serum bilirubin level greater than 6 mg/dL at the postnatal age of 6 hours was a good predictor of severe hemolytic disease, ie, that the infant would require additional modalities such as intensive phototherapy, intravenous immunoglobulin, or exchange transfusion.” This article was corrected online.
