Study of developmental disorders among newborns in Fukushima City after the Great East Japan Earthquake and nuclear power plant accident via Fukushima Journal of Medical Science

This corrects the article “Study of developmental disorders among newborns in Fukushima City after the Great East Japan Earthquake and nuclear power plant accident; an adjunct study of the Fukushima Regional Center of the Japan Environmental and Children’s Study (JECS)” on page 1-5.

FUKUSHIMA JOURNAL OF MEDICAL SCIENCE Vol. 65 (2019) No. 1, 1-5

This is based on a survey of two-year-old but not three-year-old cohorts. Therefore, we cannot state anything about the incidence of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in over three-years-old children. We submit corrections in the following errata, because the original sentences might mislead the readers without evidence from three-year-old children. Also, we would like to exclude the phrase of “low-dose radiation” from the sections of Key word, Abstract, and Conclusion, because this study did not cover its influence.
