A few sentences contained errors in “Abuses in Human Papillomavirus DNA Testing” by P. E. Castle (Obstet Gynecol 2011;118:1–3). These errors were introduced during production.

* On page 2, fourth paragraph, the second and third sentences incorrectly read, “As the result of cotesting, some women under the age of 30 years may tested HPV positive and have undergone colposcopy who otherwise would not have. Consequently, some women might have been diagnosed with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 2 (CIN2), which an equivocal, often regressive precancerous diagnosis9,10 that triggers excision treatment.” The correct sentences are: “As the result of cotesting, some women under the age of 30 years may have tested HPV positive and have undergone colposcopy who otherwise would not have. Consequently, some women might have been diagnosed with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 2 (CIN2), which is an equivocal, often regressive precancerous diagnosis9,10 that triggers excision treatment.”

* Also on page 2, fourth paragraph, last sentence, the phrase “additional additional” appears in error. The correct sentence is, “Thus, the potential additional pick-up of low-invasive potential CIN 2 in this population from cotesting women must be juxtaposed against the increase in excision treatments for which other risk factors occur (eg, increased risk of negative reproductive outcomes, including preterm delivery and perinatal mortality).”12

Box 1 contains several errors in “Microscopic Hematuria in Women” by E. A. Erekson, M. D. McMahon, B. A. Moule, and C. R. Rardin (Obstet Gynecol 2011;117:1429–34).

* “Wegner granulmatosis” should read “Wegener granulomatosis”

* “Acute tublar necrosis” should read “Acute tubular necrosis”

* “Medullary cystitic kidney” should read “Medullary cystic kidney”

* “Polycystitic kidney disease” should read “Polycystic kidney disease”

* “Schiostosomiasis” should read “Schistosomiasis”

In “Relationship Between Head-to-Body Delivery Interval in Shoulder Dystocia and Neonatal Depression” by H. Lerner, K. Durlacher, S. Smith, and E. Hamilton (Obstet Gynecol 2011;118:318–22), the sentence in the first column, on page 319, lines 13–15, contains an error. The incorrect sentence reads, “They found that the mean head-to-body delivery interval in neonates with 5-minute Apgar scores of 6 or higher was 4.9 plus or minus 1.1 minute.” The correct sentence is, “They found that the mean head-to-body delivery interval in neonates with 5-minute Apgar scores of 6 or lower was 4.9 plus or minus 1.1 minute.” This error occurred during production.
