In the original article by Gopal et al titled "Cranial Computed Tomography Before Lumbar Puncture: A Prospective Clinical Evaluation," published in the December 13/27, 1999, issue of the ARCHIVES (1999;159:2681-2685), an error occurred in Table 1 on page 2683. The sensitivity and specificity for seizures less than 72 hours should have read 18% and 87%, respectively; for altered mentation, 76% and 65%, respectively; and for papilledema, 12% and 99%, respectively. The remainder of the table is correct.
