We failed to spot a spelling mistake and an outdated drug name in this “10-minute consultation” article by H U Rehman and T A Bajwa (27 November, p 1271). It should be carpal (not carpel) tunnel syndrome, and the recommended international non-proprietary name (rINN) of the treatment for hypothyroidism is levothyroxine (not thyroxine, which is the former British approved name, BAN).
