In the Sept 5 issue of The Journal (238:1032-1033, 1977), the ORIGINAL CONTRIBUTION "Acute Purulent Otitis Media in Children Older Than 5 Years: Incidence of Haemophilus as a Causative Organism" referred to two reports from Scandinavia instead of one. On page 1033, the two sentences beginning in line 22 of column 1 should read as follows: "One recent report from Scandinavia14 has shown a higher incidence of isolates of H influenzae from otitis media than previously reported.12,13 In this series,14H influenzae was found even in excess of S pneumoniae in otitis media in children older than 5 years."
