Abstract

Objective: Tigecycline has a wide spectrum antimicrobial activity including multi-drug resistant and extended drug resistant nosocomial Gram-negative bacteria. Although its pediatric use has not been approved, clinicians are sometimes obligated to choose tigecycline as salvage therapy. In this study, we present our clinical experience regarding tigecycline use in children.
