In the Original Contribution entitled "Handheld Cellular Telephone Use and Risk of Brain Cancer" published in the December 20, 2000, issue of THE JOURNAL (2000;284:3001-3007), a hospital was identified incorrectly, incorrect statistics appeared in the "Methods" section, and rounding errors appeared in 2 of the tables. On page 3001, Dr Neugut's affiliation should have read "Department of Medicine, Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University, New York, NY." On page 3002, the first sentence in the "Methods" section should have read "New York Presbyterian Hospital" not "Columbia University Presbyterian Hospital." Also on page 3002, the second to last sentence in the second column should have been "In the first 2 years of the study, 100 of the case interviews (21%) and 22 of the control interviews (5%) were conducted with proxies." Also on page 3003, in Table 2, the corresponding values for "Musculoskeletal disorder" should have been "71 (23.9)." On page 3005, in Table 4, the corresponding values for "No. (%) Who Ever Used a Cellular Telephone" for "Cerebrum (not lobes)" should have been "36 (5.6)."
