In the MMWR Recommendations and Reports entitled "Sexually Transmitted Diseases Treatment Guidelines, 2015," several errors occurred.
On page 50 in the box, the bullet under "Positive Control" should read: "Commercial histamine for scratch testing (1.0 mg/mL)"
On page 93, the second sentence under the heading "Anal Cancer" should read: "However, an annual digital anorectal examination may be useful to detect masses on palpation that could be anal cancer in persons with HIV infection and possibly HIV-negative MSM with a history of receptive anal intercourse."
On page 101, in the recommendations box under "Alternative Regimens," it should read: "Malathion 0.5% lotion applied to affected areas and washed off after 8–12 hours OR Ivermectin 250 ug/kg orally, repeated in 2 weeks."
On page 102, in the recommendations box, the dagger footnote should be placed after "Lindane."
On page 103, the fifth sentence under the heading "Crusted Scabies," should read: "Combination treatment is recommended with a topical scabicide, either 25% topical benzyl benzoate or 5% topical permethrin cream (full-body application to be repeated daily for 7 days then two times weekly until discharge or cure), and treatment with oral ivermectin 200 ug/kg on days 1,2,8,9, and 15."
