Am Fam Physician. 2021 Jan 15;103(2):70.

Inaccurate disease description. In the Practice Guidelines “Community-Acquired Pneumonia: Updated Recommendations from the ATS and IDSA” (July 15, 2020, p. 121), in the title of Table 2 (page 122) and the first sentence in the second paragraph of the Antibiotic Therapy section (page 124), the word severe was inadvertently included before community-acquired pneumonia. The title of Table 2 should have read: “Initial Treatment Regimens for Outpatients with Community-Acquired Pneumonia.” The sentence should have read: “Table 2 lists options for antibiotic regimens for the empiric treatment of CAP in the outpatient setting.” The online version of this Practice Guideline has been corrected.
