Erratum: Vol. 53, No. RR-14

In the MMWR Recommendations and Reports, "Treating Opportunistic Infections Among HIV-Exposed and Infected Children: Recommendations from CDC, the National Institutes of Health, and the Infectious Diseases Society of America," in Appendix A, on page 65, an incorrect dosage was provided for infants and children with Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia under the column heading, "Preferred therapies and duration." The correct dosage is highlighted: "Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP/SMX) 15--20 mg/kg body weight TMP plus 75--100 mg/kg body weight SMX administered intravenously or by mouth in 3--4 divided doses daily (AI) (after acute pneumonitis resolved in mild-moderate disease, intravenous TMP/SMX may be changed to oral)."
