South African guideline for the management of community-acquired pneumonia in adults

In the article that appeared on Page 1469-1502 of the Vol 9, No 6 (June 2017) Issue of the Journal of Thoracic Disease (1), there is an error in Table 2: the dose of Clarithromycin 1 g XL should be 1 g XL daily, not 1g XL 12 hourly.

Therefore, the correct table is as follows (Table 2):

We are sorry for the inconvenience caused.
