When calculating the annual incidence rates in article , unfortunately an error occurred. The corrected incidence rates should be the following, and the relevant paragraph of the ‘Results’ should therefore correctly read:
Based on our findings, the annual incidence rate of TSC (definite or possible TSC) is estimated at a minimum of 1:27.312 live births. However correcting for underreporting using data from previous ESPED analyses, the estimated incidence rate of definite or possible TSC is approximately 1:11.180–1:22.360 live births in Germany.
