On page 830, incorrect data on sex and age were given in the first sentence (lines 1-2) of the Results section of the abstract.

On page 831, incorrect data on sex were published in the second sentence (lines 2-3) of the Results section. The sentence should read as follows: The 15 men and 6 women had a lengthy history (>6 years) of solid-food dysphagia. On page 832, lines 3 through 6, right-hand column, an incorrect number was published. The sentence should read as follows: Despite the paucity of GERD [gastroesophageal reflux disease]-like symptoms, 17 of the 21 patients had been treated with daily doses of a proton pump inhibitor for at least 9 months before their evaluation at the Mayo Clinic. On page 832, lines 8 through 10, right-hand column, an incorrect number was published. The sentence should read as follows: Only 10 patients described a prior history of atopy (hay fever, asthma, or eczema) or had a documented drug allergy.
