Abstract

Gentamicin and standard-dose ibuprofen were administered to an adolescent with cystic fibrosis who developed renal failure and severe vestibulotoxicity. A contributing factor was possible suboptimal intravascular volume status. Because of the potential severity of this drug interaction, hydration status and renal and vestibular functions should be closely monitored in patients receiving ibuprofen and intravenous aminoglycosides concomitantly.
