In "Clinical Implications of Varying Degrees of Vancomycin Susceptibility in Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Bactermia, by Mitchell J. Schwaber et al., errors occurred in some reference numbers. In the Discussion, fourth paragraph, p. 661, the last sentence should read as follows: 'It is possible that some or all of the isolates from our cases are potential precursors of truly heteroresistant isolates (hetero-VISA), which may in turn be forerunners of VISA (6,18,32)." In the final paragraph, pp. 662-663, the next to last sentence should read as follows:
"These results add weight to assertions that clinical microbiology laboratories need not routinely screen for vancomycin heteroresistance in S. aureus isolates with vancomycin MICs in the susceptible range (1,7).”
