Correction: terbinafine for dermatophytes in skin and nail (8 June, page 47)


We states that terbinafine was effective in the treatment of dermatophyte infections of thick keratin (such as the sole of the foot) but not been compared with griseofulvin at the recommended does (1g daily). We overlooked a small double-blind trial (31 patients).1 Terbinafine 250mg daily for 6 weeks achieved 100% mycological cure – much better than griseofulvin 1g daily (45%). The result does not alter our recommendations on use of terbinafine.
