The answer to the "Test Your Knowledge" question that appeared on page 182 of volume 106 (August 1972) is incorrect. The correct answer is "e," which states that modern formulations of tetracycline do not result in the Fanconi-like syndrome of renal toxicity. The answer given was "c," which implies that defects in urinary concentrating ability do not occur as a side effect of tetracycline therapy. That statement is not correct; numerous instances of nephrogenic diabetes insipidis due to tetracycline have been reported.
