Chronic granulomatous otitis media in bottle-fed Inuit children.
TLDR
Clinical observations suggest that otitis media in Inuit children is part of a process leading to chronic foreign bodygranuloma of the middle ear, and that the granuloma is formed from milk introduced into the relatively short and straight eustachian tubes of Inuit infants by the high negative intraoral pressure necessary for bottle-feeding.

Adverse drug reactions to a cephalosporins in hospitalized patients with a history of penicillin allergy.
TLDR
Although the incidence of reactions to cephalosporin in penicillin-allergic patients is low, those patients who reacted had more severe manifestations including anaphylaxis, so continued caution regarding administration of cep Halosporins, especially those with amino benzyl side chains, to patients who have a definite history of an immediate reaction to Penicillin is advised.

Nitrofurantoin safety and effectiveness in treating acute uncomplicated cystitis (AUC) in hospitalized adults with renal insufficiency: antibiotic stewardship implications
TLDR
In experience, used appropriately against susceptible uropathogens, nitrofurantoin was highly effective in nearly all patients with CrCl = 30–60 ml/min. Expand
Burkholderia contaminans Colonization from Contaminated Liquid Docusate (Colace) in a Immunocompetent Adult with Legionnaire’s Disease: Infection Control Implications and the Potential Role of
TLDR
B. contaminans was cultured from respiratory secretions and liquid docusate (Colace) in a Neurosurgical Intensive Care Unit (NICU) patient with community-acquired Legionnaire’s disease but not from another bottle given to the patient, which may have inhibited the growth of C. pelliculosa in the same bottle.

Predictors of ertapenem therapeutic efficacy in the treatment of urinary tract infections (UTIs) in hospitalized adults: the importance of renal insufficiency and urinary pH
TLDR
In hospitalized adults with AUC and CAB, ertapenem was consistently effective in eliminating the GNB bacteriuria, but in those with renal insufficiency and an alkaline urine pH, the rapidity of cure was prolonged, i.e., > 3 days which has not been previously reported. Expand
