Three errors occurred in the CASE REPORT "Relapse of Gram-negative Bacillary Meningitis After Cefotaxime Therapy" published in the Sept 10 issue of The Journal (1982; 248:1214-1215). On page 1214, the first sentence of the third paragraph in the "Report of a Case" section should have read: "A lumbar puncture demonstrated an elevated CSF pressure to 580 mm of CSF [not 580 mm Hg]." In the fifth paragraph within that section, the first part of the second sentence should have read: "Lumbar puncture demonstrated a CSF pressure of more than 600 mm of CSF [not 600 mm Hg]...." The second heading of the Table on page 1215 should have read: Pressure, mm of CSF [not mm Hg].
