In the article ``Isophasic Reaction Following Experimental Superinfection of Leishmania Tropica,'' by Dr. A. Dostrovsky and his associates, published in the December 1952 issue, Leishman-Donovan bodies were incorrectly called Leishmania donovani in the footnotes of Tables 1 and 2, pages 667 and 668 respectively, and in line 6 on page 673.
The first paragraph of the summary, on page 675, should read as follows:
Successful superinfection of Leishmania tropica in patients with relapsing cutaneous leishmaniasis has been obtained. Eight out of 10 superinfections with 1,000,000 or 10,000,000 culture leptomonads of L. tropica in five patients with cutaneous leishmaniasis recidiva yielded positive leishmanial lesions. One million parasites induced such positive lesions following four out of five superinfections, and 10,000,000 induced them following four out of five superinfections. One superinfection, in a sixth patient, was unsuccessful.
