An authors' error occurred in this paper by C Carlier et al (30 October, pp 1106-10). In the abstract and the fourth paragraph of the results section the 95% confidence interval for the difference between children taking retinyl palmitate and those taking B carotene (1.2%) should be - 6.2% to 8.6% (not 0.8% to 1.6% a published). This does not affect the conclusions of this study; the two treatments remain statistically equivalent.
