Am Fam Physician. 2002 Apr 1;65(7):1281.

The article “Management of Group A Beta-Hemolytic Streptococcal Pharyngitis” (April 15, 2001, page 1557) contained an error in the dosage of azithromycin in Table 4. The dosage of azithromycin for children with group A beta-hemolytic streptococcal pharyngitis is incorrectly given as 10 mg per kg on day 1 and 5 mg per kg on days 2 through 5; the correct dosage is 12 mg per kg for five days.
