Am Fam Physician. 1999 Aug 1;60(2):404.

The January 1, 1999 “Clinical Quiz” contained questions that were incorrect or poorly worded. The answer to Question 16, pertaining to the article “Snowboarding Injuries” (page 131), is incorrect as published. The correct answers are A and C. Question 17, pertaining to the article “Surgical Options in the Management of Groin Hernias” (page 143), is misleading in that the text of the article does not provide information on the percentage of inguinal hernias that are indirect. It is correct to say that more than 90 percent of groin hernias are inguinal. The correct answer to this question is B.
