In the article “Endocarditis Secondary to Microsporidia: Giant Vegetation in a Pacemaker User” by Filho et al, which appeared in the April 14, 2009 of the journal (Circulation. 2009;119;e386–e388), several errors have been corrected.
The legend for Figure 1 should read, “Twelve-lead surface ECG obtained in the operating room with the pacemaker programmed to asynchronous mode.”
On page e386, first paragraph, line 11, where it is written “ECG showed a normally functioning pacemaker” it should be “ECG showed a normally functioning pacemaker programmed to asynchronous mode just before surgery.”
Also on page e386, second paragraph, line 12, where it says “persistent bacteremia,” it should read “persistent fever and chills,” Again on page e386, second paragraph, line 14 where it says “without signs of endocarditis,” it should be “not adherent to the atrium wall or the tricuspid valve.”
On page e387, in the legend to Figure 3, third line, where it is written “that did not compromise the tricuspid valve,” it should read “that did not adhere to the tricuspid valve.”
The online version of the article has been corrected.
The authors regret the errors.
