An error occurred in the BRIEF REPORT "Aspergillus Spinal Epidural Abscess," published in the Dec 17 issue of The Journal (1982;248:3138-3139). On page 3139, the first full sentence in column 1 should have read as follows: "A lumbar myelogram demonstrated compression of the spinal canal anteriorly and posteriorly at the L4-5 interspace (Figure)." On that same page, the legend for the Figure should have read as follows: "Myelogram demonstrates anterior and posterior compression of spinal canal at L4-5 interspace with destruction of L-5 vertebral body and its right transverse process."
