In the 15 January 2010 issue of the journal, in the article by Solomkin et al (Solomkin JS, Mazuski JE, Bradley JS, et al. Diagnosis and management of complicated intra-abdominal infection in adults and children: guidelines by the Surgical Infection Society and the InfectiousDiseases Society of America.Clin Infect Dis 2010;50(2):133–164), there were 2 errors: First, recommendation 38 should read as follows: “The empiric use of antimicrobial regimens with broad-spectrumactivity against gram-negative organisms, including meropenem, imipenem-cilastatin, doripenem, or piperacillin-tazobactam alone; or ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, or ceftazidime or cefepime, each in combination with metronidazole, is recommended for patients with high-severity community-acquired intra-abdominal infection, as defined by APACHE II scores >15 or other variables listed in Table 1 (Table 2)” [not “The empiric use of antimicrobial regimens with broadspectrum activity against gram-negative organisms, including meropenem, imipenem-cilastatin, doripenem, piperacillin-tazobactam, ciprofloxacin or levofloxacin in combination with metronidazole, or ceftazidime or cefepime in combination withmetronidazole, is recommended for patients with high-severity community- acquired intra-abdominal infection, as defined by APACHE II scores >15 or other variables listed in Table 1”]. Second, in table 5, the frequency of dosing for gentamicin should be “every 24 hours” [not “every 2–4 hours”]. The authors regret these errors.
