In the December issue of TB Monitor, an error occurred in an article describing research published by Henry Blumberg, MD, associate professor of medicine in the division of infectious disease at Emory School of Medicine in Atlanta. The work concerned false-positive tuberculin skin tests that had occurred at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta. The article should have stated that after the hospital switched from Tubersol to Aplisol, the researchers determined that there were false-positive reactions to Aplisol among health care workers. In addition, the article contained an error in the reference for the publication, which should have read: Blumberg HM, et al. JAMA 2000; 83:2793. We regret the errors.
