In the letter "First Report of Human Granulocytic Ehrlichiosis from Southern Europe (Spain)," by José Oteo et al., there are two citation errors on p. 431, column 2. The correct ciations follow.

First paragraph, second sentence: "We used 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) in La Rioja, and evidence of HGE infection in patients at risk has been reported (11)."

We regret any confusion this error may have caused.
