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)."
