DOI 10.1007/s10096-012-1674-y

Due to some texts delineating the subgroups “T-SPOT.TB” and “QFT” have been unexpectedly swapped around during our editing process, the following changes should be made:

1. Table 1. Exchange the position of the text “QFT (30 studies)” and “T-SPOT (24 studies)”.

2. Page 3131. Exchange the position of pooled estimates for QFT and T-SPOT. The correct description should be: “(1) QFT Pooled estimates of the sensitivity, specificity, PLR, NLR, DOR and their 95 % CI were 0.77 (0.75-0.79), 0.81 (0.80-0.83), 7.17 (4.70-10.92), 0.26 (0.20-0.33), 37.24 (19.16-72.40), respectively… (2) T-SPOT Pooled estimates of the sensitivity, specificity, PLR, NLR, DOR and their 95 % CI were 0.89 (0.87-0.91), 0.79 (0.77-0.81), 6.65 (4.28-10.33), 0.14 (0.10-0.20), 61.49 (32.21-117.39), respectively…”
