To the editor: There is an error in the third paragraph in our editorial en tuberculosis (1). What we meant to convey is that resistance to any effective drug occurs at a rate of 1 X 10-5 to 1 X 10-7 divisions. Thus, a population of 1 X 10-9 organisms in a cavitary case might harbor from 100 to 10 000 resistant mutants.
