This prospective study examined 149 consecutive patients admitted to a tertiary otorhinolaryngology centre with spontaneous epistaxis, who underwent nasal packing, over a six-month period. In the first three-month period, 78 patients were routinely prescribed prophylactic antibiotics; in the second three months, 71 patients were not routinely prescribed antibiotics. Exclusion criteria included antibiotics prescribed for unrelated pathology and post-operative epistaxis. Signs and symptoms of acute otitis media, sinusitis and toxic shock syndrome were assessed using clinical examination and a questionnaire.

Modic type 1 changes/bone edema in the vertebrae are present in 6 % of the general population and 35-40 % of the low back pain population. It is strongly associated with low back pain. The aim was to test the efficacy of antibiotic treatment in patients with chronic low back pain (>6 months) and Modic type 1 changes (bone edema).

In a double-blind, cross-over, placebo-controlled study, 12 patients on stable warfarin therapy, received a 7 day amoxiclav regimen or placebo.
This phase III, investigator-blind, randomized, parallel-group study compared the efficacy and tolerability of clarithromycin modified release (MR) with those of amoxicillin/clavulanic acid in 250 adult outpatients with acute exacerbationof chronic bronchitis (AECB). Patients received either clarithromycin MR 500 mg once daily or amoxicillin/clavulanic acid 500 mg/125 mg three times daily for 7 days. Primary endpoints were sponsor-defined clinical response and pathogen outcome at the end of treatment. Secondary endpoints were sponsor-defined clinical response and pathogen outcome at study end, investigator-defined clinical response at end of treatment and end of study, resolution or improvement of signs and symptoms, eradication of baseline pathogens, serologic outcome for atypical pathogens, and occurrence of reinfection and superinfection. Adverse events and compliance were also evaluated. Clinical and bacteriologic outcomes with both treatments for all endpoints were statistically equivalent, as were total adverse events, although the incidences of digestive disturbances (13% vs 4%) and discontinuations due to adverse events (8 vs 2 patients; P < or =.05) were significantly higher with amoxicillin/clavulanic acid. Ninety-five percent of patients receiving clarithromycin MR and 80% receiving amoxicillin/clavulanic acid were 100% compliant with medication (P < or =.05). Clarithromycin MR and amoxicillin/clavulanic acid are both well tolerated and effective as therapy for AECB; however, clarithromycin produced fewer side effects and discontinuations and higher compliance rates.

We present the case of an 8-year-old patient after liver transplantation who developed drug induced liver injury (DILI) after amoxicillin/clavulanic acid treatment for upper respiratory tract infection. Jaundice appeared 2 days after cessation of treatment. Clinical presentation and liver biopsy were consistent with DILI. Because of rapidly increasing bilirubin levels, we used 3 boluses of methylprednisolone and ursodeoxycholic acid. The treatment reversed progression of the cholestasis and full recovery was achieved in 3 months.

Understandable concerns about the development of hospital-acquired infection led to a new protocol for antibiotic prophylaxis which in turn led to a number of patients being put at increased risk of potentially serious infective complications. Antibiotic prophylaxis must reflect tissue penetration, the organisms encountered and their susceptibilities, as well as being based on objective evidence.

Augmentin Duo 400/57 has not previously been reported in the treatment of BKC in children. In this case series, Augmentin Duo 400/57 proved to be at least as effective as current treatments with systemic erythromycin or doxycycline with the advantage of a twice-daily dosage and a superior side-effect profile.
This is an unusual outbreak of histoplasmosis following short-term travel to Africa. Pulmonary histoplasmosis should always be considered in the differential diagnosis of an acute febrile respiratory illness in travelers returning from endemic areas or reporting activities suggesting exposure.

A 67-year-old [correction of 53] man with multidrug resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) had been persistently positive for acid-fast bacilli (AFB) both on sputum smear and also on culture with the Ogawa egg medium for 30 years since 1951. The case had been treated previously with isoniazid, rifampin, streptomycin, ethambutol, kanamycin, ethionamide, paraaminosalicylate and cycloserine; however, M. tuberculosis strains isolated from this patient acquired a high resistance to all of these agents. Then, a new regimen of chemotherapy, INH combined with ofloxacin (OFLX) and amoxicillin-clavulanic acid (AMPC/ CVA), was applied to the case. He was successfully treated with this regimen, and a marked decrease in the amount of AFB on smear as well as on culture was observed during the course of chemotherapy. No adverse effects were seen meanwhile. These data suggest that it is worth while to try a regimen containing AMPC/CVA and OFLX in the treatment of MDR-TB.
To evaluate costs, clinical consequences, and cost-effectiveness from a German and French health-care system perspective of sequential i.v./po moxifloxacin monotherapy compared to co-amoxiclav with or without clarithromycin (AMC +/- CLA) in patients with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) who required parenteral treatment.
Forty-two children were recruited into the study and one defaulted on follow-up. Failure occurred in 6 of 20 for the azithromycin group and 5 of 21 for the amoxycillin/clavulanate group. The odds ratio was 1.46 (95%CI 0.37-5. 80, P = 0.73). No relapse occurred in azithromycin group and 5 of 21 in amoxycillin/clavulanate group. The odds ratio was 0.16 (95%CI 0. 017-1.51, P = 0.18). Both antibiotics were well tolerated, however, two children, one from each group, complained of mild transient epigastric discomfort.
