Am Fam Physician. 2002 Jul 1;66(1):30.

The article “Peritonsillar Abscess: Diagnosis and Treatment” (January 1, 2002, page 93) contained two misleading illustrations. Figure 2, on page 94, and Figure 3, on page 95, did not accurately portray peritonsillar abscess and needle aspiration of the abscess, respectively. These illustrations should not be relied on as models for aspiration.
