Table 1 of the article “Treatment of Prostatitis” (May 15, 2000, page 3015) contained an error. The first two elements in the diagnostic test column were inadvertently transposed; that is, the pre- and postmassage test should have been listed first, while the Stamey-Meares four-glass test should have been listed second. The corrected table is reprinted below.
|Diagnostic test||Test components|
|Pre- and postmassage test (PPMT)||Midstream urine culture*||Expressed prostatic secretions‡|
|Stamey-Meares four-glass test||Premassage urine culture*||Premassage urine microscopy†||Postmassage urine culture‡||Postmassage Urine microscopy†|
