Teicoplanin and Colistin Induced Nephrotoxicity in A Patient of Septicaemia: A Case Report With Emphasis on Morbidity

Shikha Sood*, Sapna Gupta**, Supriya Malhotra***, Pankaj Patel***.

Abstract
Teicoplanin is a glycopeptides antibiotic active against a broad spectrum of gram positive bacteria with negligible action on Gram negative bacilli. Colistin is polymixin which is active against Gram negative organisms only. Nephrotoxicity has been reported with both Teicoplanin and Colistin. A 52 year old patient diagnosed with septic shock following fecal peritonitis was prescribed Teicoplanin, Meropenem and Colistin. Meropenem was omitted after results of culture sensitivity and other two drugs were continued. This patient had a rise in creatinine levels after 10 days of therapy. Teicoplanin was discontinued on 13th of therapy with improvement in patients condition. Hence physicians need to be aware of this interaction of added nephrotoxicity when combining these two antimicrobials. [Shikha S NJIRM 2017; 8(4):106-108]

Key words: Adverse Drug Reaction, Colistin, Nephrotoxicity, Teicoplanin.

List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE

The List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE publication ceased with the 2008 edition. The NLM Catalog can be used to obtain a list of currently indexed MEDLINE titles; select the Limit for Current Subsets called "Currently indexed in MEDLINE."

The List of Serials Indexed for Online Users online publication is designed to provide bibliographic information for serials from which articles are indexed with the MeSH® vocabulary and cited in MEDLINE®, the backbone of the NLM PubMed® database. More detailed bibliographic data and information about indexing coverage for serials cited in MEDLINE/PubMed can be found in LocatorPlus®, the NLM online catalog, and the NLM Catalog, an Entrez database.

Journals Recently Accepted by NLM for Inclusion in MEDLINE lists titles selected by LSTRC which meets three times per year in February, June, and October. Results from those meetings appear online about six weeks after each meeting, both on the Web page and in the NLM Catalog.

Previous print versions of the List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE might be available from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Information about ordering documents from GPO is available at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/pubcat.html#ordering.
