Default name change

I'm an IMG from India. I have registered in ECFMG with my name as Tulasideepthi Karri as mentioned in my medical diploma and transcript. But in my passport and other documents my name is Tulasi Deepthi Karri. The difference is space between Tulasi and deepthi.
Now should I make a request to ECFMG for correction or go for a new registration.

Get a letter from your coll dean, stating that both the names are same and send it to ECFMG. Even I had the same problem and it was solved this way

Thanks a lot for the reply.is there a particular proforma for that letter. How much time it takes for my name to get corrected? I am thinking of applying for step 1 exam. Just stopped because of this doubt.
