Erratum: Vol. 42, No. RR-7

In the MMWR Recommendations and Reports, "Initial Therapy for Tuberculosis in the Era of Multidrug Resistance, Recommendations of the Advisory Council for the Elimination of Tuberculosis," dated May 21, 1993, on page 3, Option 1 in Table 1 should read as follows: Administer daily INH, RIF, and PZA for 8 weeks followed by 16 weeks of INH and RIF daily or 2-3 times/week *. In areas where the INH resistance rate is not documented to be less than 4%, EMB or SM should be added to the initial regimen until susceptibility to INH and RIF is demonstrated. Continue treatment for at least 6 months and 3 months beyond culture conversion. Consult a TB medical expert if the patient is symptomatic or smear or culture positive after 3 months.

In addition, add the following citation to the reference section: 17. CDC. National action plan to combat multidrug-resistant tuberculosis. MMWR 1992;41(no. RR-11):1-30.
