Article Contents

Additional changes were needed in the letter, First Report of Human Granulocytic Ehrlichiosis from Southern Europe (Spain), by José Oteo et al. on p. 431, column 2 and p. 432, references. The corrected sentences and references follow.

First paragraph, second sentence: “Samples were sent to Dr. Barral at the Instituto Vasco de Investigacion y Desarrollo Agrario (NEIKER) who kindly performed the assay using a set of primers based on the published sequence of the 16s rRNA of E. phagocytophila (E1: 5'-GGC ATG TAG GCG GTT CGC TAA GTT -3' and E2: 5'-CCC CAC ATT CAG CAC TCA TCG TTT A-3') (10).”

Second paragraph, second sentence: “The prevalence of E. phagocytophila genogroup in the tick Ixodes ricinus is high (24.1% of nymphs, determined by PCR) (11) in La Rioja, and evidence of HGE infection in patients at risk has been reported (12).”
