To the Editor.—We have noted an error in reporting the incidence of cataracts in our article, "Clinical Variation in Usher's Syndrome," published in the October 1971 Archives (94:321-334).
Of the six individuals within the three sibships, three had evidence of cataracts on ophthalmologic evaluation. The text and Tables 3 and 4 are inconsistent in this regard, relative to the first two sibships. In the first sibship, both V-4 and V-5 had cataracts. In the second sibship, VI-12 had cataracts, but VI-11 did not. The third sibship is as stated, without evidence of cataracts in either VII-2 or VII-3.
