Peter Moult, consultant physician at the Whittington Hospital, London, was inadvertently omitted as an author of this drug point (27 September, p 785). He referred the patient whose case is discussed to the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, and it was his history taking that pointed to chlorhexidine as a possible causative agent of the severe reaction while the patient was in intensive care there.
