In the published study, “What is the Accuracy of Nuclear Imaging in the Assessment of Periprosthetic Knee Infection? A Meta-analysis” several errors can be found throughout the manuscript.

In Table 1, the column title, “Number of hip prostheses (total/infected)” should be: “Number of knee prostheses (total/infected).”

In Table 2, the column title, “Hip prostheses (primary/revision)” should be: “Knee prostheses (primary/revision).” In the legend for Table 2, “H = hybrid hip prostheses” should be removed.

In the Discussion section, Figure 5A-B is incorrect as published. The corrected Fig. 5A-B is shown in this erratum.

The title of Table 14 is incorrect. The title should be: “Diagnostic accuracy of fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography for detection of periprosthetic knee infection.”

The title of Table 15 is incorrect. The title should be: “Study characteristics of fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography for detection of periprosthetic knee infection.”

Additionally, Figure 8A-B is incorrect as published. The corrected Fig. 8A-B is shown in this erratum.

The authors apologize for the errors.
