Error in the features of leptospirosis. The article “Hepatitis A” (December 1, 2012, p. 1027) contained an error in Table 2 (p. 1029) regarding the distinguishing features of leptospirosis. The distinguishing features section for leptospirosis should have read: “History of exposure to water contaminated by animal urine or direct contact with animal urine,” rather than “History of animal or tick exposure.” The online version of this article has been corrected.
