Errors in Text

Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med. 1999;153(5):453. doi:10.1001/archpedi.153.5.453

In the article titled "Head Trauma in Children Younger Than 2 Years: Are There Predictors for Complications?," published in the January issue of the ARCHIVES (1999;153:15-20), several editorial errors were made in the abstract and text. In the "Results" section of the abstract, the third sentence should have read, "Seven percent of complications from SF/ICA resulted from falls 3 ft (0.9 m) or less." The last sentence in that paragraph should have read, "Among children who fell 3 ft (0.9 m) or less and had no loss of consciousness, emesis, seizure, behavioral change, or scalp abnormality, none of 31 (95% confidence interval [CI], 0-0.10) children younger than 24 months and none of 20 (95% CI, 0-0.15) children younger than 12 months had SF/ICA." Similarly, in the first full paragraph on page 17, the next to last sentence should have read, "Of the 138 children who fell 3 ft (0.9 m) or less, 7% had an SF and/or ICA." The ARCHIVES regrets these errors.
