In the Letter to the Editor titled “Types of Shade Vary in Protection Just Like Sunscreens,”1 published online on June 21, 2017,1 and commenting on the Original Investigation titled “Sun Protection by Beach Umbrella vs Sunscreen With a High Sun Protection Factor: A Randomized Clinical Trial” by Ou-Yang et al,2 it was incorrectly reported that Dr Ou-Yang, corresponding author of the Original Investigation, had been shown a copy of the letter and offered an opportunity to reply. Dr Ou-Yang had not seen the letter at that time nor received the request for reply. The Letter to the Editor has been corrected online.

Subsequently, Dr Ou-Yang received and read the Letter to the Editor1 and together with 2 of his coauthors submitted a letter in reply,3 which appears in this issue of JAMA Dermatology.
