Incorrect Wording

JAMA. 1998;279(20):1614. doi:10.1001/jama.279.20.1614

In The Rational Clinical Examination entitled "Does This Patient Have Deep Vein Thrombosis?" published in the April 8, 1998, issue of THE JOURNAL (1998;279:1094-1099), wording in a table was incorrect. On page 1096, in Table 5, the sentence that reads "Scoring method: high probability if ≥3 major points and no alternative diagnosis, ≥2 major points and ≥2 minor points and no alternative diagnosis; low probability if 1 major point and ≥2 minor points and an alternative diagnosis, 1 major point and ≥1 minor point and no alternative diagnosis, 0 major points and ≥3 minor points and an alternative diagnois, 0 major points and ≥2 minor points and no alternative diagnosis; and moderate probability if all other combinations" should have read as follows: "Scoring method: high probability if ≥3 major points and no alternative diagnosis, ≥2 major points and ≥2 minor points and no alternative diagnosis; low probability if 1 major point and ≤2 minor points and an alternative diagnosis, 1 major point and ≤1 minor point and no alternative diagnosis, 0 major points and ≤3 minor points and an alternative diagnosis, 0 major points and ≤2 minor points and no alternative diagnosis; and moderate probability if all other combinations."
