An editorial error occurred in the second letter of this cluster, by David Goldmeier and Linda Greene (5 October, p 776). The first sentence of the third paragraph should have read: “Although treatment failures with one injection of benzathine penicillin 2.4 MU in patients with early syphilis and HIV have been described,4 the latest guidelines from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continue to advocate this one off injection for HIV coexisting with syphilis.2“ [Not, as published: “Although treatment with one injection of benzathine penicillin 2.4 MU in patients with early syphilis and HIV has failed, the latest guidelines from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continue to advocate this one off injection for HIV coexisting with syphilis.24”]
