In the Original Investigation titled “Development of a Gestational Age–Specific Case Definition for Neonatal Necrotizing Enterocolitis,”1 published online January 3, 2017, and in the March 2017 issue of JAMA Pediatrics, there was an error in the sensitivity and specificity estimates in the Results section of the Abstract, the Results section of the text, and the Supplement. In the Abstract, the sentence should read, “The case definition has a sensitivity of 63.9% (95% CI, 60.6-67.0), a specificity of 96.8% (95% CI, 96.1-97.4)….” In the text, the sentence should read, “Applying this to the entire data set yielded a sensitivity of 63.9% (95% CI, 60.6-67.0), a specificity of 96.8% (95% CI, 96.1-97.4)….” In the Supplement, the third row of the eTable should read “63.9 (60.6-67.0)” and “96.8 (96.1-97.4)” under the Sensitivity and Specificity columns, respectively. Importantly, this error did not affect the conclusions of the study.2 This article was corrected online.
