Abstract

We investigated the pharmacokinetics of gentamicin in a haemodialysis patient treated for endocarditis caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and found that the administration of gentamicin immediately prior to dialysis was a suitable strategy for reaching target maximum drug concentration (Cmax) values and low trough levels.
