Error in Text. In the Neurological Review by Blackman et al titled "Paroxysmal Autonomic Instability With Dystonia After Brain Injury," published in the March issue of the ARCHIVES (2004;61:321-328), an error occurred in the text on page 327. On that page, in the paragraph under "Criteria for PAID," the fourth sentence should have read as follows: "Within the clinical setting of traumatic brain injury, signs of PAID syndrome include (1) severe brain injury (Rancho Los Amigos level, ≤IV), (2) temperature of at least 38.5°C, (3) pulse of at least 130 beats/min, (4) respiratory rate of at least 20 breaths/min, (5) systolic blood pressure of at least 140 mm Hg, (6) agitation, (7) diaphoresis, and (8) dystonia (ie, rigidity or decerebrate posturing)." PAID indicates paroxysmal autonomic instability with dystonia.
