Errors in Reporting White Blood Cell and Absolute Neutrophil Counts. In the article titled "Utility of the Serum C-reactive Protein for Detection of Occult Bacterial Infection in Children" published in the September issue of the ARCHIVES (2002;156:905-909), there are several mispresentations of the white blood cell (WBC) and absolute neutrophil count (ANC) values in the abstract, as well as in "Patients and Methods" and "Results" section. For example, in the abstract, where the median WBC value reads, "12.9 × 109/µL," the "×109" should be ×103. All instances of WBC and ANC values should, therefore, be reported as thousands of cells per microliter.
