Correction

Our recently published review article [1] contained a misprint. On page four under the sub-heading 'Goal-directed fluid therapy' and in the third paragraph, the sentence:

"Results of a randomized trial investigating mortality in 3,141 children with severe febrile illness and impaired perfusion in sub-Saharan Africa surprisingly showed higher mortality at 48 hours and at 4 weeks in the group that did not receive any fluid boluses compared with two groups resuscitated with albumin or saline 38."

should have instead read:

"Results of a randomized trial investigating mortality in 3,141 children with severe febrile illness and impaired perfusion in sub-Saharan Africa surprisingly showed lower mortality at 48 hours and at 4 weeks in the group that did not receive any fluid boluses compared with two groups resuscitated with albumin or saline 38."

The authors sincerely regret this error.
