Re: “2. Anaphylaxis: diagnosis and management”, by Simon G A Brown, Raymond J Mullins and Michael S Gold, in the 4 September issue of the Journal (Med J Aust 2006; 185: 283-289). In Box 6 on page 287 (“Emergency management of anaphylaxis”), there is an error in the third line. The correct wording should be “Give adrenaline IM (lateral thigh) 0.01 mg/kg (maximum dose 0.5 mg)”. The corrected Box is reproduced in full below.
