They comprised three cases of acute tonsillitis and 1 case each of phlegmon, bronchopneumonia and cervical abscess. CTM was administered in a daily dose of 50-115 mg/kg t.i.d. by an 1-hour intravenous drip infusion for 4 to 8 days. 2. The causative bacteria were S. aureus in 3 cases and H. parainfluenzae, K. pneumoniae and unknown pathogen in each 1 case.
