Antibiotic-related renal failure and cystic fibrosis.


Recently published reports suggest that the combination of aminoglycosides with ceftazidime may increase the risk of renal disease in cystic fibrosis. We describe a case of unusually severe acute tubular necrosis occurring in an adolescent with cystic fibrosis receiving i.v. gentamicin plus ceftazidime and discuss the possible mechanisms.
