Am Fam Physician. 2014 Oct 1;90(7):434.

Incorrect wording. The article “Update on Latent Tuberculosis Infection” (June 1, 2014, p. 889) contained an error in Table 6 (p. 894) regarding how tuberculin skin testing is performed. In the first row of the column “Tuberculin skin test,” the information should have indicated that purified protein derivative be injected intradermally, not subcutaneously. The online version of this article has been corrected.
