Incorrect description of microbiological methods: In “Meningitis and pneumonitis caused by pet rodents” in the 20 February 2012 issue of the Journal (Med J Aust 2012; 196: 202-203), there was an error in the clinical record box. The third sentence of the fourth paragraph should have read: “After 24 hours of incubation, light growth of an organism was noted on blood and chocolate agars (Oxoid Australia, Thebarton, SA) which had been incubated anaerobically and in supplemental carbon dioxide.”
