In the Consensus Statement entitled "Anthrax as a Biological Weapon: Medical and Public Health Management" published in the May 12, 1999, issue of THE JOURNAL (1999;281:1735-1745), the color of the photomicrograph in Figure 1 on page 1727 was incorrectly reproduced. The correct image showing gram-positive anthrax bacilli in a peripheral blood smear from a rhesus monkey that died of inhalational anthrax is available (Figure 1, left). A second photomicrograph (lower magnification) of a gram stain of the peripheral blood of a rhesus monkey that died of inhalational anthrax is also available (Figure 1, right).
