There is a growing body of evidence that amoxicillin-clavulanic acid may induce severe adverse effects in patients.

The effect on the nasopharyngeal bacterial flora of 10 days of amoxycillin-clavulanate or cefdinir antimicrobial therapy was studied in 50 children with acute otitis media. Before therapy, 17 potential pathogens (Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae and Moraxella catarrhalis) were isolated from the nasopharynx of 14 (56%) of those treated with amoxycillin-clavulanate, and 20 potential pathogens were recovered from 15 (60%) of those treated with cefdinir. Following therapy, at days 12-15, the number of potential pathogens was reduced to a similar extent with both therapies, to three in those treated with amoxycillin-clavulanate and two in those treated with cefdinir. However, the number of potential pathogens rebounded faster in those treated with amoxycillin-clavulanate as compared with cefdinir in the two subsequent specimens taken at days 30-35 and 60-65 (12 and 18 in the amoxycillin-clavulanate group, and six and nine in the cefdinir group, P < 0.01 and P < 0.001, respectively). Differences between the groups were also noted in the recovery of organisms with interfering capability. Immediately following amoxycillin-clavulanate therapy, the number of interfering organisms declined from 54 to 13, while following cefdinir treatment their number was reduced from 59 to 39 (P < 0.001). The differences between the two therapy groups persisted in the two later specimens taken at days 30-35 and 60-65 (25 and 38 in the amoxycillin-clavulanate group, and 52 and 51 in the cefdinir group, P < 0.001 and P < 0.05, respectively). This study illustrates the potential beneficial effect of using a narrow-spectrum antimicrobial that selectively spares the interfering organisms while eliminating pathogens. The benefit of such therapy is the prevention of reacquisition of pathogenic bacteria in the nasopharynx. In contrast, utilization of a broad-spectrum antimicrobial is associated with prolonged absence of inhibitory organisms and rapid recolonization with pathogens.

There was very little good quality evidence. Four studies were included, all of them investigating different interventions and therefore a meta-analysis was not possible.Only one study demonstrated a significant difference. Oral amoxicillin clavulanate was compared to placebo in 79 patients. The odds of having a discharge persisting eight days after starting treatment was 0.19 (95% CI 0.07 to 0.49) . The number needed to treat to achieve that benefit is 2.5. Participants in both arms of this study also received daily aural toilet. The results will therefore not be applicable to most settings including primary care. No significant benefit was shown in the two studies investigating steroids (oral prednisolone with oral amoxicillin clavulanate and topical dexamethasone with topical ciprofloxacin ear drops), or the one study comparing an antibiotic-steroid combination (Otosporin®) drops versus spray (Otomize®) (although more patients preferred the spray form).

The reports concerned 28 men and 12 women with an average age of 61 years who had used the drug mostly for a respiratory tract infection. The latency period between first in-take and onset of the reaction was 3 weeks on average. The mean duration of hepatic injury was approximately 6 weeks. The liver injury resolved fully. Five patients had had the reaction on more than one occasion. The main symptoms were jaundice, nausea, pruritus and abdominal pain. The pattern of hepatic injury was mostly cholestatic or mixed hepatocellular-cholestatic.

We report a case of Lemierre syndrome in a healthy infant, initially presenting with otitis media and angina. Lemierre syndrome is a disease that every pediatrician must know. Early diagnosis and treatment with antibiotics are necessary to decrease mortality. A review of the history and the complications of Lemierre syndrome is presented.

The clinical coding of CAP diagnosis was poor. There was very poor adherence to the CAP severity assessment and the provision of preventive measures upon hospital discharge. The development and implementation of a local hospital-based integrated care pathway may lead to more successful implementation of the guidelines.

Five case histories are presented of patients developing cholestatic hepatitis associated with the intake of the antibiotic combination agent amoxicillin and clavulanic acid (Augmentin). In two of these cases, signs of hepatic injury recurred after readministration of this combination but not after the intake of amoxicillin alone. In none of the patients was another cause for cholestatic hepatitis found and extrahepatic causes were excluded by ultrasonography, CT scanning, or ERCP. Most viral causes of hepatic injury were excluded in these patients. With the exception of one patient, who developed a transient rash, no immunoallergic signs were present. Biopsy in two patients showed extensive cholestasis without significant necrosis. Clavulanic acid seems to be responsible for this adverse effect.
A total of 1598 blood cultures were taken; 1003 were positive (positivity rate 62.8%). Escherichia coli was the most common organism found (36.6%), followed by Staphylococcus aureus (29.5%), Pseudomonas (22.4%), Klebsiella (7.6%), and Proteus (3.8%). No group B streptococcus was grown. Listeria monocytogenes was found in one cerebrospinal fluid culture. E coli and Pseudomonas showed a high degree of resistance to commonly used antibiotics (ampicillin, augmentin, and gentamicin), a moderate degree of resistance to cephalosporin (cefotaxime, ceftzidime, and ceftrioxone), and low resistance to drugs not used for newborn babies (ofloxacin, ciprofloxacin, and enoxabid). S aureus showed a low resistance to all three groups of antibiotics.
