September 2003, VOLUME112 /ISSUE 3


An error occurred with regard to the order of the authors’ names and the authors’ respective affiliations in the article by Roy et al titled “A Family Cluster of Five Cases of Group A Streptococcal Pneumonia,” which appeared in the July 2003 issue Pediatrics electronics pages (Pediatrics. 2003;112:e61–e65).

The order of the authors’ names (which appear right after the title of the article on page e61) should now read as follows:

Sumita Roy, MD*; Edward L. Kaplan, MD‡; Benigno Rodriguez, MD§; John R. Schreiber, MD, MPH*‖; Robert A. Salata, MD§; Elizabeth Palavecino, MD‖; and Chandy C. John, MD, MS*

The order of the authors’ affiliations (which appear in the bottom left of page e61 in the affiliations footnote) should now read as follows:

From the *Department of Pediatrics, Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital and Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Cleveland, Ohio; ‡World Health Organization Collaborating Center for Reference and Research on Streptococci, Department of Pediatrics, University of Minnesota Medical School, Minneapolis, Minnesota; and the Departments of §Medicine and ‖Pathology, University Hospitals of Cleveland and Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio.

This has been corrected in the electronic version of the article that appears on the AAP’s Web site.
