Accelerated Acute Tubular Necrosis Due to VancomycinShah, Sunay MD*; Nasiri, Papia MD†; Vazquez, Jose MD‡Infectious Diseases in Clinical Practice: May 2013 - Volume 21 - Issue 3 - p 208–210 doi: 10.1097/IPC.0b013e3182769291 Case Reports Abstract Author Information Abstract: Vancomycin is the most commonly used antibiotic for the treatment of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. We report a case of vancomycin-induced nephrotoxicity leading to biopsy-proven acute tubular necrosis. In addition, the case also highlights the plausible risk factors associated with the development of accelerated vancomycin-induced nephrotoxicity.
