Sir,

This letter is with regard to our study, the details of which are below. We would like to point out to an error that has arisen in the printed table.

Indian J Endocrinol Metab July-August 2013/Vol 17/Issue 4, Titled: Prevalence of hypothyroidism in adults: An epidemiological study in eight cities of India on Pages: 647-52.

In the results section it was mentioned that 598 (11.15%) participants gave history of thyroid dysfunction including thyroid surgery- however in [Table 1] only 581 patients who gave positive history of thyroid disease were listed. Seventeen patients who gave positive history of benign thyroid nodules were not mentioned in the table due to an error.

Thus, while considering the table, readers are advised to consider that the total number of people who gave a history of thyroid disease is 598.
