• Corrected Figure: Bayes nomogram figure in the Glossary

Some time ago, we published a version of the Bayes’ nomogram with some ill-spaced likelihood ratios (LRs) at the extremes of the scales. Ill-formed versions will have the LR of 1000 and 0.001 at a greater spacing than the rest of the LRs. These appeared in the glossaries of ACP Journal Club between Sep/Oct 1998 and Nov/Dec 1999. If you have been using a nomogram that differs (at the extremes of the center scale) from the one in the Glossary, please replace it. Our thanks to Jan Hajek for alerting us to the problem.
