Abstract

In the MMWR report, "Fatal abusive head trauma among children aged <5 years - United States, 1999-2014," multiple errors occurred in the figure on page 507 (corrected text is noted by underline). The top box should have read, "The underlying cause code in the death record must indicate assault as the intent of injury." The bottom left box should have read, "Abusive head trauma diagnosis codes (S02.0-S02.1, S02.7-S02.9, S04.0, S06.0-S06.9, S07.1, S07.8-S07.9, S09.7-S09.8, T90.2, T90.5, T90.8-T90.9)." The bottom right box should have read, "Must exclude all abusive head trauma injury codes," and "Must exclude all of these traumatic brain injury diagnosis codes."
