Errors in Case Report

Arch Ophthalmol. 1999;117(6):751. doi:10.1001/archopht.117.6.751

In the article titled "Increased Iris Pigment in a Child Due to Latanoprost," in the December issue of the ARCHIVES (Arch Ophthalmol. 1998;116:1683-1684), 3 errors occurred. First, the last sentence of paragraph 3 should have read "A diagnosis of glaucoma was not made, although a documented myopic shift from −3.5 diopters (D) to −5.5 D OD occurred within 1 month (+0.75 D OS)." Second, in the first column on page 1684, the sentence that begins on line 23 should have read "latanoprost successfully lowered intraocular pressure to 17 to 22 mm Hg." Finally, the parenthetical comment on line 8 of the first full paragraph in the second column on page 1684 should have read "(mean, 4.5 months)." The journal regrets these errors.
