An error occurred in the South African Hypertension Guideline 2011 that was published as a supplement to January 2012 SAMJ. The error is in the title of the heading for Table IV, on page 64; the title should read International Diabetes Federation (IDF) definition of metabolic syndrome - and not diabetes. The authors regret this error. The online edition of the Guideline has been corrected.
