CORRIGENDUM FOR “Subclinical Changes in Maternal Thyroid Function Parameters in Pregnancy and Fetal Growth”

In the above-named article by Johns LE, Ferguson KK, Cantonwine DE, Mukherjee B, Meeker JD, and McElrath TF (J Clin Endocrinol Metab. 2018;103(4):1349–1358. doi: 10.1210/jc.2017-01698), the authors examined the association between thyroid hormone measures in pregnant women and fetal growth. In Table 1, the labeling of the rows representing the n (%) of the population that is carrying a male vs. a female fetus was reversed. The corrected table is shown here. Table 1.
