Incorrect Wording

JAMA. 2000;284(16):2059. doi:10.1001/jama.284.16.2059

In the Preliminary Communication entitled "Borrelia burgdorferi–Specific Immune Complexes in Acute Lyme Disease" published in the November 24, 1999, issue of THE JOURNAL (1999;282:1942-1946), there was incorrect wording in the Abstract and in the "Methods" section. On page 1942, the first sentence in the Abstract under "Results" should have read, "The B burgdorferi immune complexes were found in 25 of 26 patients with early seronegative erythema migrans (EM) LD; 105 of 107 patients with seropositive EM LD; 6 of 10 samples that were seronegative with culture-positive EM; 0 of 12 patients who were treated and recovered from LD; and 13 of 13 patients with neurologic LD without EM." On page 1943, in the "Methods" section, under the subheading "Patients," in the second column, paragraph 3, the first sentence should have read, "Ten samples from 7 patients who had EM and LD confirmed by culture, but were seronegative (n = 7)."
