In “Community-acquired Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Uruguay” by Xiao Xue Ma et al., errors occurred on pages 973 and 974.
The first sentence of the abstract should read as follows: A novel, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus clone (Uruguay clone) with a non–multidrug-resistant phenotype caused a large outbreak, including 7 deaths, in Montevideo, Uruguay.
The first sentence of the article should read as follows: Since the 1990s, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections have been increasingly recognized in the community, and MRSA strains isolated from patients with community-associated cases have been called community-associated MRSA (CA-MRSA).
The first sentence of Figure 1 legend (p. 974) should read as follows:
The monthly accumulation of cases of infections due to non–multidrugresistant MRSA strains from January 2002 to October 2003.

We regret any confusion these errors may have caused.
