TO THE READERSHIP: An error appeared in the article by Abu Hamdeh et al. (Abu Hamdeh S, Marklund N, Lewén A, et al: Intracranial pressure elevations in diffuse axonal injury: association with nonhemorrhagic MR lesions in central mesencephalic structures. J Neurosurg [epub ahead of print September 14, 2018; DOI: 10.3171/2018.4.JNS18185]).
In Fig. 2C, one of the labels is incorrect. “Mesencephalic nucleus of vagal nerve” should be “Mesencephalic nucleus of trigeminal nerve.” The corrected figure appears on the following page.
A: DWI (b = 1000 sec/mm2) of a 54-year-old man who was involved in a motor vehicle accident (MVA). The image displays a centrally located lesion in the mesencephalic tegmentum (arrow). The patient was managed with propofol coma to control ICP. B: DWI (b = 1000 sec/mm2) of an 18-year-old man involved in an MVA. The image displays lesions in the right mesencephalic tegmentum (arrow). The patient was managed with CSF drainage to control ICP. C: Anatomical illustration of brainstem and mesencephalic structures. Cross-section of the mesencephalon through the superior colliculi is shown. Central brainstem lesions associated with increased ICP are located in the region of the SN-T (boldface type). As depicted in the figure, this region includes numerous vital structures.
