In “Case Report: Scabies Invading Gingival Tissue” by Dantas Martins and others (https://doi.org/10.4269/ajtmh.20-0707) the authors would like to issue a correction.

In the abstract, the text currently reads “The treatment consisted of 100 mg of ivermectin (three times per day for 15 days), supplemental oral hygiene with chlorhexidine ...” when it should have read “The treatment consisted of 12 mg of ivermectin initially and, after seven days, 12 mg again, supplemental oral hygiene with chlorhexidine ...”

In the third paragraph under the section Case Report, the text currently reads “After diagnosis, 100 mg of ivermectin was given orally three times per day for 15 days” when it should have read “After diagnosis, the treatment proposed was 12 mg of ivermectin initially and, after seven days, 12 mg again.”

The authors and the Journal regret the error.
