Error in thumb joint typically affected by osteoarthritis: In the article “Osteoarthritis: Diagnosis and Treatment” (January 1, 2012, p. 49), Table 1 (p. 49) contained an error in the third item listed under the “hand” heading. The statement should refer to tenderness over the carpometacarpal joint of the thumb, rather than the metacarpophalangeal joint of the thumb. The online version of this article has been corrected.
