Incorrect Author Affiliation and Block Quotation Notation Missing

Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med. 1998;152(5):279-284. doi:10.1001/archpedi.152.5.448

In the article titled "Neonatal Circumcision: Randomized Trial of a Sucrose Pacifier for Pain Control" published in the March issue of the ARCHIVES (1998:152:279-284) an error occurred in Dr Ellman's affiliation. She should have been listed as being affiliated with the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and not as having an affiliation with the Department of Pediatrics. Another error occurred on page 279, left-hand column, with the quotation from the 1989 American Academy of Pediatrics Task Force, that begins on line 19. A block quotation should have been set for the words following "stated." The material that begins with the word "local" and ends with "circumsion.5" should all have been set as a block quotation. The journal apologizes for the error.
