Am Fam Physician. 2014 Mar 1;89(5):318.

Incorrect ceftriaxone dosages (missing “per kg”). The article “Otitis Media: Diagnosis and Treatment” (October 1, 2013, p. 435) contained incorrect dosages for ceftriaxone in the second and third columns of Table 3 (p. 437), failing to include “per kg”; these incorrect dosages also appeared in the original source article for the table. The correct dosage for both columns is as follows: 50 mg per kg IM or IV per day for one or three days, not to exceed 1 g per day. The online version of this article has been corrected.
