Our report of an increased INR with bleeding complications as a result of an interaction between warfarin and AM/CL is consistent with those in the literature. Although the mechanism for this interaction is not fully known, it is suspected that a decrease in vitamin K-producing gut flora with resulting vitamin K deficiency would be the most likely contributing factor. An objective causality assessment revealed that this adverse drug event as a result of the warfarin and AM/CL interaction was possible.

Proteus mirabilis strain MAG1, a clinical isolate that is resistant to broad-spectrum penicillins and co-amoxiclav, produces inhibitor-resistant TEM (IRT)-21, a novel mutant of TEM beta-lactamase. This enzyme has a pI of 5.2 and is derived from the bla(TEM-1a) gene ancestor. It contains two major amino acid substitutions specific for co-amoxiclav resistance (Leu-69 for Met and Ser-244 for Arg) that have never been found together previously. The dramatic loss of sensitivity to clavulanic acid, the enhancement of K(m) for all beta-lactams and markedly for ticarcillin, and the decrease in the catalytic efficiency makes IRT-21 comparable to the other IRTs with substitutions at position 244 or double substitutions.

Inadequate treatment or neglect of odontogenic infections can have serious consequences. The potential for spreading through fascial planes and intracranially can cause compromise of the airway and cavernous sinus thrombosis respectively. On rare occasions this can lead to a rapidly progressing necrotising fasciitis, with destruction of soft tissue, making reconstruction difficult. Antibiotic administration without removal of the cause is inadequate and can complicate subsequent management. We report the presentation and successful management of a 13-year-old boy, who developed necrotising fasciitis in the submandibular region as a result of inadequate initial treatment of a carious, lower molar resulting in significant skin and soft tissue loss.

Several bacteriological, historical, treatment-related factors were identified as predictors of early (EOT) and later (8 weeks posttherapy) clinical failure in this older outpatient population with moderate-to-severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. These patients should be closely monitored and sputum cultures considered before and after treatment.

Analysis shows a different safety profile for the two selected drugs. The combination of amoxicillin/clavulanic acid has been increasingly used in Italy and now represents the most frequently antibiotic prescribed by Italian general practitioners. Given the documented level of inappropriate use of beta-lactams in Italy, these results should be taken into account by physicians before prescribing amoxicillin/clavulanic acid to patients.

Olfactory disorders are among the rare adverse effects of antibiotic therapy. To date, olfactory losses or distortions have been reported after the use of doxycycline, amoxicillin, clarithromycin, roxithromycin, kanamycin sulfate, and streptomycin sulfate. We describe what we believe to be the first case of transient anosmia associated with the use of intravenous amikacin sulfate. The appearance of the disorder and its subsequent resolution were demonstrated by psychometric testing as well as by chemosensory evoked potentials. Based on the well-documented temporal course of the anosmia, there is a probable causal correlation between the administration of amikacin and the appearance of the olfactory disturbance. However, the exact pathogenesis of the anosmia is still a matter of conjecture.

Amoxicillin/clavulanic acid is a widely used antibiotic. Hepatic dysfunction is a rare adverse reaction associated with this combination antibiotic. We report the case of a 40-yr-old woman with a somewhat unusual presentation of amoxicillin/clavulanate-related cholestatic hepatotoxicity and multiple duodenal erosions whose diagnosis was delayed until inadvertent rechallenge with the antibiotic combination. The relevant literature is also reviewed and discussed. The diagnosis may be missed because the onset of signs/symptoms may occur several weeks after the cessation of therapy. The hepatic dysfunction, which may be severe and is more prevalent in elderly patients, is usually reversible, although chronic liver disease and deaths have been reported. Immunological hypersensitivity is considered to be the most likely mechanism resulting in liver injury. Amoxicillin/clavulanate should be used with caution in patients with underlying liver disease and in the elderly.

Children aged 2-59 months with WHO-defined severe or very severe pneumonia with hypoxemia (SpO2 < 90%) were included in the study. Patients with fever > 10 days, bacterial meningitis, prior antibiotic therapy > 24 hours, stridor, heart disease and allergy to any of the study drugs were excluded. They were randomly allocated to two groups--Group A and Group B. Group A received C. pen and gentamicin intravenously (IV), followed by oral amoxicillin and group B got amox-clav IV, followed by oral amox-clav. Minimum duration of IV therapy was 3 days and total 7 days. Respiratory rate, oxygen saturation and chest wall indrawing were monitored 6 hourly.
