In this paper, Kaplan Meier analysis estimates of the combined penetrance of phaeochromocytoma and paraganglioma (PPGL) and head and neck paraganglioma (HNPGL) was incorrectly reported. This was because of an error importing data into the statistical software R.
The following penetrance estimates were affected:
The penetrance of PPGL/HNPGL in SDHB non-probands by age 60, reported as ‘21.8% (95% CI 15.2% to 27.9%)’, should read ‘22.5% (95%CI 15.9% to 28.6%)’ (see sentence 9 of abstract, sentence 2 of paragraph 4 under the section head ‘Age-related tumour risks’ of the results, and figure 2). …
