Acinetobacter baumannii is a nosocomial pathogen of increasing importance. The pharmacokinetic parameter that best correlates with a positive outcome for serious infections when gentamicin is administered intravenously, is the ratio of peak serum concentration C max to MIC optimally the ratio should be greater than ten.

Parenteral fluoroquinolones in children with life-threatening infections. J Assoc Physicians India. Global challenge of multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii. Duration of therapy The IDSA guidelines for management of bacterial meningitis recommend antibiotic therapy for Gram-negative meningitis for 21 days. Rifampicin may be useful in the therapy of multidrug-resistant A baumannii infections in combination with other drugs such as polymyxins,sulbactam, and carbapenems.

In patients with non-inflammatory occlusive hydrocephalus who had undergone external ventriculostomy, maximal CSF concentrations of meropenem after receiving an initial 2 g intraventriuclar dose, administered over 30 min, were 0.

Thus, these antibiotics are poor options sose suspected acinetobacter meningitis. Similar to ceftazidime, Lodise and colleagues 96 characterised the pharmacodynamic profile of the IDSA recommended cefepime dose for bacterial meningitis 2 g cefepime every 8 h.

In intraventriculwr, pharmacodynamic considerations would suggest that ceftazidime or cefepime would be poor choices for therapy of acinetobacter meningitis even against susceptible strains.

Given the pharmacodynamic issues mentioned above, we would recommend a dosing regimen of mg ciprofloxacin, or higher, every 8 h if the drug was to be used for acinetobacter meningitis.

Acinetobacter baumannii meningitis in children: Although CSF is considered sterile, there is the possibility that acinetobacter may contaminate CSF during its collection.

Even higher doses of ciprofloxacin mg every 8 h have been used in treatment of meningitis due to Gram-negative bacilli. Fever and change in conscious state are typical signs of acinetobacter meningitis. Intraventriular Fluoroquinolones may sometimes be active against Acinetobacter spp, with levofloxacin tending to have lower MICs than ciprofloxacin.
