Since the online publication of this article, the authors have noticed the following errors:

Figure 2 is incorrect. Please see corrected figure 2 shown below as figure 1:

Figure 1

Pathologic Features of Patients with Chronic PD-1 Pneumonitis. H&Estaining of lung biopsy samples from patients with chronic pneumonitis. (A)Patient 1: Bronchiolitis obliterans Organizing Pneumonia (BOOP), described inmanuscript as organizing pneumonia, with an intra-alveolar fibroblast plug andorganizing alveolar fibrin; (B) Patient 2: Acute lung injury with acutefibrinous organizing pneumonia and organizing diffuse alveolar damage; (C) Patient 3: Organizing alveolar fibrin consistent with exudative phase of BOOP;(D) Patient 4: Organizing pneumonia (BOOP) with organizing alveolar fibrin; (E)Patient 5: Organizing alveolar fibrin consistent with exudative phase of BOOP;(F): Patient 6: Organizing pneumonia (BOOP).

The legend for figure 3 was incorrectly linked to online supplemental figure 2 and vice versa. The correct figure 3 legend is ‘Chronic pneumonitis is associated with brisk lymphocytic inflammation, including many proliferating PD-1 +CD8+T cells. A representative case of chronic pneumonitis (Patient 5) with abundant lymphocytic inflammation is shown (H&E, top left, see also figure 2). Profiling of the inflammatory microenvironment with multiplex immunofluorescence (top center) reveals a dramatic recruitment of PD-1 +lymphocytes (green, top right) and numerous CD8 +cytotoxic T cells (white, bottom left). Many of the PD-1 +and CD8+lymphocytes are positive for the proliferation marker Ki67 (red, bottom center), including numerous PD1 +CD8+T cells (bottom right, arrows highlight PD-1 +CD8+Ki67+cells). Original magnification 200 x.’

Supplemental material

The correct online supplemental figure 2 legend is ‘Highly proliferative PD-1 +cell accumulation characterizes chronic pneumonitis. Low power H&E and mIF images highlight the relative abundance of Ki67 +PD-1+lymphocytes in chronic pneumonitis (top row) relative to sparse inflammatory cells seen in histologically unremarkable lung tissue (bottom row). Original magnification 200 x.’
