Following the publication of our article , 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.
