The intraventricular use of antibiotics. Comparison of gatifloxacin and levofloxacin administered at various dosing regimens to hospitalised patients with community-acquired pneumonia: We are not filegype of any clinical reports in which such dosing has been given. A retrospective review of cases of Gram-negative meningitis showed that mortality was lower after intraventricular rather than after systemic therapy in both children and adults.

Even higher doses of ciprofloxacin mg every 8 h have been used in treatment of meningitis due to Gram-negative bacilli. The mechanisms of development of carbapenem resistance are not described in these reports.

Pseudomeningitis caused by Acinetobacter baumannii. Acinetobacter meningitis typically occurs following neurosurgery table 1.

Nonconvulsive status epilepticus associated with cephalosporins in patients with renal failure. Acinetobacter baumannii meningitis in post-neurosurgical patients: Int J Antimicrob Agents. The recommended dosage in IDSA guidelines for polymyxin B administered by the intraventricular route is 5 mg daily in adults and 2 mg daily in children. Pharmacodynamic profiling of cefepime in plasma and cerebrospinal fluid of hospitalized patients with external ventriculostomies.


Management of meningitis due to antibiotic-resistant Acinetobacter species

In summary, conventional sulbactam dosing 2 g of ampicillin and 1 g of sulbactam every 6 h may only be sufficient for therapy of acinetobacter meningitis when: Efficacy and safety of doripenem vs. Sulbactam Sulbactam is of potential use in serious A baumannii infections given its in-vitro activity against the organism, including some carbapenem-resistant strains. Secondary infection of an external ventriculostomy or infection of other external devices also mandates complete removal of the hardware and the initiation of antibiotic therapy.

Increased inflammation would facilitate greater penetration into the CSF. Treatment of a meningitis due to an Enterobacter aerogenes producing a derepressed cephalosporinase and a Klebsiella pneumoniae producing an extended-spectrum beta-lactamase.

Given that most patients with acinetobacter meningitis have undergone neurosurgical procedures and have readily accessible CSF via external ventricular drains, follow-up CSF cultures can be readily done. Disposition of cefepime in the central nervous system of patients with external ventricular drains. Ferguson The Journal of antimicrobial chemotherapy Infections of the central nervous system.

However, cases of true infection that have no CSF white amlkacin cells have been reported. Intraventriicular bacillary meningitis therapy. Showing of 23 references. The neurotoxicity and safety of treatment with cefepime in patients with renal failure. Both imipenem and meropenem have been used in the treatment of acinetobacter meningitis. The pharmacokinetics of tigecycline do not support this antibiotic as a treatment for meningitis due to A baumannii.

It is vital that any agent given intraventricularly be made up in a preservative-free medium to prevent toxicity. IDSA guidelines for management of bacterial meningitis reserve ciprofloxacin for patients who have not responded to, or cannot receive, alternate antimicrobial therapy. Intrathecal use of colistin.


In vitro activities of various antimicrobials alone and in combination with tigecycline against carbapenem-intermediate or -resistant Acinetobacter baumannii. Intrathecal amikacin for the treatment of pseudomonal meningitis.

Duration of therapy The IDSA guidelines for management of bacterial meningitis recommend antibiotic therapy for Gram-negative meningitis for 21 days. Additionally, we would recommend that antimicrobial therapy be combined with removal of all neurosurgical hardware to maximise the chances of cure of this infection. The publisher’s final edited version of this article is available at Lancet Infect Dis.

Successful treatment of Acinetobacter meningitis with intrathecal polymyxin E. ZiaiJohn J. Removal of internal shunt, lumbar drain, and EVD. Pharmacokinetic studies of gentamicin concentration in one case. The optimal number of negative cultures to indicate successful eradication of CSF infection is not known, but it seems prudent to continue intraventricular therapy until at least three consecutive CSF cultures from separate days produce negative results.
