To the Editor.  —An error in drug dosage was published on page 68 in the article, "Therapy of Fluid and Electrolyte Disorders," by R.D. Linderman and S. Papper, in the January 1975 issue of Annals of Internal Medicine (82:64, 1975).The doses of mithramycin for treatment of hypercalcemia, as described in the fifth paragraph of the first column on page 68, should be 25μg/kg of body weight and 150μg/kg of body weight per week, not 25 mg/kg of body weight and 150 mg/kg of body weight per week.Readers of The Journal should call this error to the attention of their colleagues and librarians (who should correct this error in library copies).A notice of this error is being published in the March 1975 issue of Annals of Internal Medicine.
