Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We describe a 52-year-old female patient who developed cardiopulmonary arrest due to neuromuscular paralysis after initiation of polymyxin B for septicemia caused by extended spectrum β-lactamase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae. Due to emerging antibiotic resistance patterns, use of polymyxins is increasing and an understanding of their toxicity is critical.
