—An error occurred in the review article entitled "Use of Antibiotics in Preventing Recurrent Acute Otitis Media and in Treating Otitis Media With Effusion: A Metaanalytic Attempt to Resolve the Brouhaha," published in the September 15, 1993, issue of The JOURNAL (1993;270:1344-1351). In the third column of page 1347, in the fourth complete paragraph, the next-to-last sentence should read as follows: "We divided the studies into those that used medications known to be active against many of the common middle-ear pathogens (cefaclor, co-trimoxazole, combination erythromycin/sulfisoxazole, ampicillin, amoxicillin, and amoxicillin/clavulanic acid) and those that used medications not generally thought to be active against these pathogens (erythromycin and sulfisoxazole [not 'combination erythromycin/sulfisoxazole'])."
