“First, the correct author name is as follows:
Second, the number of affected patients (14) refers to the number of probands as mentioned in the title and Results section. The number of carrier patients (7) refers to the carriers regardless of the symptoms as presented in the Results section.
Third, the correct notation symbol for “Family 9-I:2” in Fig. 1 is a solid circle.
All the carriers except Family 9-I:2 were “unaffected” as presented in Table 2. Therefore, the number of affected and unaffected patients were 19 and 22, respectively. The 19 patients affected in Table 2 included 14 probands, 4 carriers with symptoms, and III-3 of Family 8.
Last, the correct notation of the first sentence in the Discussion section is as follows:
The clinical and genetic characteristics of RPGR-RD were illustrated in a nationwide cohort of 15 affected individuals (14 probands and III-3 of Family 8), 14 unaffected individuals, and 12 carriers (4 carriers with symptoms and 8 carriers without symptoms) from 13 Japanese families with RPGR-RD, detecting 13 variants including 8 novel variants.”
The authors apologize for the inconvenience caused.
