Re: “Ototoxic ear drops with grommet and tympanic membrane perforations: a position statement”, the letter by Robert J Black, Vince C Cousins, Peter Chapman, Zoran Becvarovski, Harvey L C Coates, Stephen J O’Leary, Christopher F Perry and Brian J Williams, in the 4 June issue of the Journal (Med J Aust 2007; 186: 605-606). The competing interests statement incorrectly states that “Zoran Becvarovski, Harvey Coates, Stephen O’Leary, Chris Perry and Brian Williams received honoraria for attendance at scientific meetings sponsored by Alcon Laboratories, which manufactures ciprofloxacin ear drops”. In fact, Brian Williams and Stephen O’Leary had no competing interests and their names appeared in this statement in error.
