Interactive case report: Treatment of nausea and vomiting during pregnancy

Two errors occurred in the first two articles in this three part series by Nicola Harker, Alan Montgomery, and Tom Fahey (31 January, p 276; 7 February p 337). In the first sentence of the first article (“presentation”), we wrongly said that the pregnant woman in the case report was primiparous, whereas in fact (as we revealed later in the text) she already had a 5 year old daughter. In the second article (“case progression”) reference 5 was wrong; two references to the “measure yourself medical outcome profile” (MYMOP) should replace this:
