We have been alerted to an error in drug dosage in this 2010 clinical review by Femke H M Prince and colleagues (BMJ 2010;341:c6434, doi:10.1136/bmj.c6434). In table 2 the leflunomide dose for children weighing 20-40 kg is quoted as 200 mg orally for two days and then 10 mg a day. The loading dose given is double what it should be. For this weight band the leflunomide dose is 100 mg orally for two days and then 10 mg a day.
