The present case emphasizes the importance of adhering to strict indications when prescribing fluoroquinolones. Although rare, drug-induced tendinopathy is not confined to fluoroquinolones. The patient's and physician's awareness should be increased to reduce fluoroquinolones-associated morbidity, particularly in patients with previously described risk factors.
