I wish to correct a mistake in our article on anabolicandrogenic steroids (AAS) (Current Psychiatry, December 2004).

When describing the Malone et al study, we incorrectly cited a statistic on the association between AAS use and attempted suicide. The sentence should have read: “In a field study of 77 steroid users (71 male and 6 female), 3 (3.9%) reported they attempted suicide during AAS withdrawal.”
