A recent clinical practice guideline from the American College of Physicians (1) and its systematic review (2) contained errors. On pages 681 and 682 of the guideline (1), the criterion for low body weight as a risk factor for osteoporosis in men should have been only body mass index less than 20 to 25 kg/m2, not both this body mass index and “weight less than about 40 kg,” as originally stated. The same criterion should have been printed in the Discussion section of the systematic review (2).
