Neurologic Complications of Systemic Disease, February 2011, Volume 17, Issue 1

The February 2011 issue of Continuum: Lifelong Learning in Neurology® (Neurologic Complications of Systemic Disease, Vol 17, Issue 1) contains three errors. The following are corrections for those errors.

Page 28, first column, line 16, the sentence "The 7-day mortality rate is high at 75%, but even up to 1 year later the mortality rate remains high" should read "The 7-day mortality rate is approximately 25%, but up to 1 year later the mortality rate remains high at approximately 36%."

Page 36, second column, line 4: The enoxaparin dose should be "0.85 mg/kg SC every 12 hours" rather than "0.85 g/kg SC every 12 hours."

Page 36, second column, line 28: The dalteparin dose should read "120 factor Xa units/mg to 200 factor Xa units/mg SC once daily" rather than "120 factor Xa units to 200 factor Xa units SC once daily."


Movement Disorders, February 2010, Volume 16, Issue 1

The February 2010 issue of CONTINUUM: Lifelong Learning in Neurology (Movement Disorders, Vol 16, Issue 1) contains two errors. The following are corrections for those errors.

Page 27, Table 1-8, last column, last row: "Autosomal dominant" should read "Autosomal recessive."

Page 37, second column, line 7, the sentence "It is made worse with alcohol ingestion (Quinn, 1996)" should read "Myoclonus dystonia is improved with alcohol (Quinn, 1996)."


Neuro-Ophthalmology, August 2009, Volume 15, Issue 4

In the August 2009 issue of CONTINUUM: Lifelong Learning in Neurology (Neuroophthalmology, Vol 15, Issue 4), chapters 8, 10, and 13 and the accompanying CD-ROM contained errors. The following are corrections for those errors:

Chapter 8
Page 124, Figure 8-2: "right" should read "left." The caption should read: "An exotropia is present if the patient sees the line to the left of the light."

Chapter 10
Page 151, Figure 10-1: The legend should read: "Solid black lines represent normal ocular alignment with which the telephone image falls on each fovea simultaneously and a single telephone is viewed. Inward deviation (esodeviation) of the front of the left eye (represented by dashed curved arrow placed behind the eye) results in binocular diplopia because the image of the telephone falls on an extrafoveal location in the left eye (dashed lines)."

Chapter 13
Page 205, second column, third line: "Arnold-Chiari type 1" should be changed to "Chiari type 1." The sentence should read: "One of the most common structural etiologies for downbeat nystagmus is the Chiari type I malformation, in which the cerebellar tonsils herniate through the foramen magnum and compress the brainstem."

CD-ROM
Video segment 35: The text should read: "When the patient saccades to the right, the adducting saccade in the left eye is slightly slower than the abducting saccade in the right eye."

Acute Ischemic Stroke, December 2008, Volume 14, Issue 6

The December 2008 issue of Continuum: Lifelong Learning in Neurology (Acute Ischemic Stroke, Vol. 14, Issue 6) contains errors with regard to the correct expression of the measurement of cerebral blood flow. Cerebral blood flow is correctly expressed as mL/100 g/min, not as mL/100 mg/min. The following are corrections for these errors.

Page 32, first column, lines 19 and 20: "22 mL/100 mg/min to 8 mL/100 mg/min" should read "22 mL/100 g/min to 8 mL/100 g/min."

Page 32, second column, line 17: "12 mL/100 mg/min" should read "12 mL/100 g/min."

Page 32, second column, line 19: "18 mL/100 mg/min" should read "18 mL/100 g/min."

Page 32, second column, line 23: "5 mL/100 mg/min" should read "5 mL/100 g/min."

Page 33, first column, lines 26 and 27: "7 mL/100 mg/min" should read "7 mL/100 g/min."

Page 33, second column, line 2: "12 mL/100 mg/min" should read "12 mL/100 g/min."

Page 33, second column, line 8: "17 mL/100 mg/min to 22 mL/100 mg/min" should read "17 mL/100 g/min to 22 mL/100 g/min."

Page 33, second column, lines 9 and 10: "7 mL/100 mg/min to 12 mL/100 mg/min" should read "7 mL/100 g/min to 12 mL/100 g/min."

Page 33, second column, line 17: "22 mL/100 mg/min" should read "22 mL/100 g/min."

Also, on page 155, question 33, the answer options are incorrect. The correct answer options are shown in the Preferred Responses, page 180, and are as follows:

  1. Both therapies are effective in preventing DVTs.
  2. Enoxaparin is not cost-effective.
  3. Enoxaparin produced fewer systemic hemorrhages.
  4. Results were indeterminate.
  5. Unfractionated heparin is more hazardous in general.

Neurotoxicology, October 2008, Volume 14, Issue 5

In the October 2008 issue of Continuum: Lifelong Learning in Neurology (Neurotoxicology, Vol. 14, Issue 5), page 213, the answer shown was incorrect for question 20 in the Preferred Responses. The correct answer is "B. Hypoxic encephalopathy."

Disorders of Cognitive Function, April 2002, Volume 8, Issue 2

The Multiple-Choice Questions section of Disorders of Cognitive Function (Volume 8, Number 2, April 2002) contained several errors:

On page 235, the correct answer to question 32 is A, basal forebrain, not C, right mesial temporal lobe.

On pages 236 and 237, the answers to questions 36, 38, and 39 cannot be answered because the answer sheet provided does not accommodate answers other than A through E. Those submitting the score sheet to obtain CME for this issue should disregard these three questions. Ten Category 1 CME credits will still be received.
