Lactic acidosis is a rare but serious adverse event linked to treatment with linezolid, an oxazolidinone antibiotic. Presented is a case of a 67-year-old man treated for 26 days with linezolid for staphylococcal osteomyelitis of the right foot with subsequent sepsis. During the course of treatment, severe lactic acidosis developed, requiring hospitalization in an intensive care unit. The likely mechanism of this potentially life-threatening complication is discussed.
