Three errors occurred in the ORIGINAL CONTRIBUTION "Anemia: Textbook vs Practice," published in the Nov 23, 1979, issue of The Journal (242:2295-2297, 1979). On page 2295, the fifth sentence of the synopsis-abstract should have read: "More importantly, 35% to 60% demonstrated criteria for choosing to investigate anemia lower than even their own perception of the textbook definition." On page 2296, the title of Table 1 should have been: "Proportions of [not 'for'] Physicians Selecting Various Levels of Hemoglobin at Which They Would Investigate or Treat Anemia." On page 2297, column 2, the second complete sentence should have read: "Such may conceivably be true when contemplating actively screening healthy populations, particularly if criteria such as direct effects of the anemia itself are emphasized, yet different considerations apply to the patient who has come to medical attention."
