Erratum to: Critical care management and outcome of severe Pneumocystis pneumonia in patients with and without HIV infection

  • 2686 Accesses

Following the publication of our article [1], it has been noted that there were two errors in the paragraph under the Results section with the sub-heading P. jiroveci pneumonia diagnosis.

The percentage given for positive staining in HIV-negative cases should read 58%, and should be 86% for HIV-positive cases. This paragraph should read:

"Staining performed on broncho-alveolar lavage specimens was positive in 58% of HIV-negative cases and in 86% of HIV-positive cases (P = 0.46) (Table 2)."

This paragraph should therefore appear as shown in this correction.
