A Corrigendum on
The Spectrum of SPTA1-Associated Hereditary Spherocytosis

by Chonat, S., Risinger, M., Sakthivel, H., Niss, O., Rothman, J. A., Hsieh, L., et al. (2019). Front. Physiol. 10:815. doi: 10.3389/fphys.2019.00815

In the original article, there was a mistake in Table 1 as published. The SPTA1 mutation of Allele 2 in Patient 1, is stated as “c.4294T>A (p.L1432*).” The correct mutation should read “c.4295del (p.L1432*).” The corrected Table 1 appears below.
