Incorrect Age. The Point-of-Care Guides, “Young Febrile Infants: Step-by-Step Evaluation,” (January 1, 2018, p. 45) contained an error in the second paragraph of the Evidence Summary section (p. 45) regarding the age of infants on which to use clinical decision rules for distinguishing low-risk infants from higher-risk infants. The age should have been infants 90 days or younger, not older. The sentence should have read: “The study included previously healthy infants 90 days or younger presenting to 11 European pediatric emergency departments between 2012 and 2014 with a fever (body temperature of 100.4°F [38.0°C] or higher documented at home or in the emergency department) of unknown etiology.” The online version of the article has been corrected.
